Contested Divorce We Can Help You Go From Unhappy to Happy Even After

What Is a Contested Divorce?

Answers from a Hartford County Divorce Lawyer

Contested divorce is what most people think of when you say the word "divorce." When two spouses cannot agree on the terms of their divorce, such as property and debt division, custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, and other areas, then the case must be litigated before a family law judge. These are known as "contested divorce" cases.

What to Expect in a Contested Divorce

Not all cases are contested. In fact, many divorces are handled quietly via mediation or collaborative law. Contested divorce can be much more complicated and can take much longer without a skilled divorce lawyer by your side. You need a Hartford County divorce attorney from Happy Even After.

Steps in the contested divorce process include:

  • Filing for divorce
  • Serving / being served notice of the divorce proceedings
  • Sending / receiving a response to the divorce notice
  • Property division litigation
  • Child custody disputes
  • Child support / spousal support disputes
  • Final decision by a judge
  • Divorce Decree granted
