Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Navigating a Contested Divorce

Experienced Panama City Divorce Lawyers

In a perfect world, when a couple decides that they want to get a divorce, they would both agree unanimously on the details of that decision, eliminating the need to go to court. In reality, the divorce process is rarely completely uncontested (after all, there is a reason the couple is divorcing), and often what couples thought would be simple turns into months of heated arguments. This is known as a contested divorce, and will almost always require assistance from an experienced divorce attorney to arrive at a successful outcome.

Common Points of Contention

If a couple simply cannot come to an agreement on their own, then a judge will be required to make allotments based on the arguments presented in court. This can leave at least one of the parents at a disadvantage because someone who may not fully understand your situation will be making decisions that affect your entire family.

Here are some of the most frequently contested subjects:

Again, since a judge is ultimately left to determine the outcome of the divorce case, it is imperative that you retain a firm that you can trust. This can drastically increase your chances of achieving your desired outcome.
