What to Expect When Contesting Divorce
Contested divorces are often quite contentious, which makes it difficult for a couple to navigate the process alone. Because of this, the court will usually recommend that both parties hire their own attorney to lead the process and help negotiate the terms being contested. Even if the spouse who originated the divorce filed the appropriate paperwork without assistance, an attorney should be contacted once the filing has been contested. Couples contesting a divorce may also be required to work with a court-appointed mediator in an effort to create a more equitable divorce agreement which can be submitted to the court for a final ruling.
