The Primary Aspects of a Contested Divorce

In a contested divorce, the following legal matters will be decided upon by the court:

  • Child custody and support issues
  • Distribution of debt incurred during the marriage
  • Allotment of property and assets acquired during the marriage
  • Alimony

There is a lot of emotional trauma and turmoil that surrounds contested divorce. One or both spouses feel that they have been wronged and are afraid that they will be cheated out of the assets that were acquired during the marriage. They do not trust one another to be truthful about what assets they each possess, thinking that the other spouse is withholding information. Neither party wants to be responsible for debts that were entered into during the marriage and wants to lay the blame on the other spouse. Of course, if one spouse earns more than the other, then the spouse with lesser earning potential may be entitled to alimony in order to maintain their current standard of living or to transition to single life. This is cause for great upheaval because neither spouse wants to part with any more money than absolutely necessary. When children are involved, the whole affair becomes messy. There is custody to assign and support payments to figure out. To make sense of all of these issues, the expertise of a skilled contested divorce attorney in Clearwater is necessary.
