Do You Need a Lawyer for a Contested Divorce?

What Is A Contested Divorce?

Although no one wants to get divorced, it’s sometimes the best thing for the individuals involved. In a contested divorce, you and your spouse cannot agree on the terms of your divorce, which can lead to a long, and complicated legal process.

Unlike an uncontested divorce, in which both parties agree to the terms of the divorce fully, a contested divorce requires further negotiations. This does not always mean that the process has to be overwhelming, complicated, or more tumultuous. Instead, having an experienced lawyer will ease the process and help guide you through the negotiation process, to get your desired outcome in less time.

How Does A Contested Divorce Work?

Attorney representation is always advisable in any divorce situation, especially during a contested divorce. Knowing what to expect from the process will help you prepare and find a lawyer.

Divorce often centers on the distribution of financial assets,  child custody, child support, spousal support or alimony, and other asset distribution. When you enter a contested divorce, your assets are typically subjected to equitable distribution—this is almost never an equal, 50-50 split. Instead, an often contentious legal process will ensue. Contested divorces in New Jersey go much more smoothly when there are skilled attorneys involved. Courts consider various factors when dividing assets, but an attorney will help you prove your case and achieve favorable results.
