Boca Raton Contested Divorce Lawyer
A divorce can free you from a troubled marriage. However, achieving the freedom you seek and the happiness you deserve is generally a difficult and stressful process. You may worry about how you will support yourself, how your assets will be divided, and how you will maintain a stable and consistent environment for your children. These concerns are intensified if you and your spouse cannot agree on the terms of your divorce, and you must resolve your differences in the courtroom. Our Boca Raton contested divorce lawyers have proven experience handling contested divorce cases and can help you choose your battles, assert your rights, and overcome hostility in the interest of a more positive future.
Spouses pursue a contested divorce when they are unable or unwilling to see eye-to-eye on important divorce issues.
In contested divorce cases, divorcing spouses cannot resolve their differences to reach an agreement regarding one or more of the following issues:
- Allocation of parental responsibilities and timesharing
- Child Support
- Property division and valuation of assets
- Alimony (spousal maintenance)
To resolve these matters, each spouse retains his or her own lawyer and divorce litigation ensues. However, not every contested divorce goes straight to battle in the courtroom. Even though a couple disagrees and emotions are running high, there may be more economical and timesaving ways to reach a resolution. In many contested divorce cases, our experienced legal team can help clients achieve a satisfactory outcome through negotiation, mediation, or arbitration before trial. But if negotiations do not obtain the desired results, we won’t hesitate to be aggressive when necessary and put our powerful litigation skills into action. In contested divorce matters, our attorneys work tirelessly to ensure our clients enjoy a fair and just conclusion at the end of divorce proceedings.
Your contested divorce will be less of a contest when you have smart, aggressive legal representation on your side.
When your divorce involves contested issues, it’s important to understand the court’s final decisions regarding these matters will be largely determined based upon the evidence presented at trial. Therefore, it is critical that you have high-quality, confident legal representation to prepare and present your strongest case. Our attorneys can devise a litigation strategy to protect your current and future interests.
