Legal Support When You And Your Spouse Cannot Agree

Before a divorce is granted, several considerations must be legally resolved. These include:

  • Alimony (spousal support)
  • Division of property
  • Custody and visitation rights
  • Child support

Divorcing spouses who agree in writing on all of these issues will likely be granted an uncontested divorce and avoid adversarial litigation.

Conversely, if there is disagreement on any of the basic issues, a contested divorce will manifest. When a divorce is contested, the couple may proceed through all phases of litigation, including trial before a family court judge. The couple may also voluntarily seek alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation or collaborative divorce (in some cases, they may be ordered by the court to do so). It is important to consult with an attorney before deciding which method is right for your situation.
