Contested Divorce Explained

Are you considering a divorce? If so, a Jacksonville family law attorney can explain certain technical terms like " contested divorce" to you.

This is when both parties cannot agree to all of the issues as they are related to the divorce. Although everyone's situation is different these areas of contention often involved custody of children, visitation rights, grounds for divorce, division of assets of the marriage, payment of family debts, health insurance for the dependant spouse and income tax structuring.

When a divorce case is officially filed it is given an identification number and is considered a case that will eventually wind up in court. All divorces remain contested until everything has been settled completely. However, if both parties are able to come to an agreement before their court date then the case can be filed as uncontested and pushed forward. An expedited hearing can be called for so that a judge can sign off on the divorce papers.
