Contested Divorce in Jacksonville, FL

Call Our Jacksonville Divorce Lawyer to Protect Your Rights

More often than not, the divorce process is a volatile, highly charged situation. In cases where both parties cannot agree on key elements of the dissolution, or even the decision to end their marriage, the divorce is considered contested. While a contested divorce is often more difficult and time-consuming than an uncontested divorce, it may provide an opportunity for you to secure an advantage during negotiations.

When you work with Hutchinson Law, you retain the counsel of legal professionals who know the ins and outs of Florida Law. We can help you understand your rights and options as you approach dissolution, and will fight to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the process. It is vital to consult an experienced Jacksonville divorce attorney to guide you through this difficult time.

Contact our firm to begin working with a legal team who holds your best interests in mind.

Elements of a Contested Divorce

Before a couple can end their marriage or partnership, one of the spouses must be able to demonstrate that the marriage is irretrievably broken, or that the other party suffers from mental incapacity. When one of these has been met, along with basic residency requirements, the spouse may file for divorce. The other party can then respond to their proposed terms of separation.

Because many cases of divorce stem from a couple's differences, it is often impossible to reach a satisfactory agreement leading to an uncontested divorce. If there are unresolved issues of any kind, the dissolution will be considered contested, and will have to be resolved in a court hearing.

A number of factors may contribute to the contested status of a divorce:

You may still have questions about the future of your children or your job, or even the possibility of parental relocation. You don't have to face these issues alone. Whether you need a strong ally in fighting for custody, or require adequate support for your family after separation, the Jacksonville family lawyer at Hutchinson Law can help you seek a positive outcome your case. We are dedicated to minimizing the stress you face at this demanding time.
