Contested Divorce Litigation in Atlanta, Athens, Alpharetta & Surrounding Areas
A contested divorce occurs when spouses can’t agree on vital issues concerning the breakup of their marital union. Some of those can include:
- Terms of alimony payments
- Child custody arrangements/schedules
- Division of marital property
- And More
In some instances a divorce is acrimonious and contested from day 1, and in other instances spouses may begin the divorce process on the same page with regards to sensitive issues only to find they ultimately disagree. In either case, when an agreement on personal details can’t be reached, a court will usually suggest mediation to reach a settlement and avoid a more costly and emotional trial. Should that process not work, the divorce would proceed to trial. It’s key that you have experienced litigation attorneys familiar with the trial process that will work hard to present the court with facts and information that will benefit you. If you think your divorce will be contested and may reach trial, reach out to our Atlanta contested divorce attorneys to discuss the details of your case.
Additional Georgia Divorce Information
Under Georgia law, one or both of spouses must have lived in the state for at least six months prior to filing. In addition, you must choose one of 13 grounds under which you may file for a divorce, ranging from adultery, where one party has been unfaithful, to desertion, in which one spouse has not been residing with or providing any financial support to the other spouse for more than a year. In most cases, we may recommend filing for a ‘no-fault divorce’, meaning simply that one spouse states the marriage is irreparably broken. While an uncontested divorce can take as little as 30 to 60 days, in the case of a contested divorce it can take considerably longer.
Divorce is never a pleasant experience, but there is no need to go through it alone. Important life decisions such as ending a marriage require time, patience and skilled legal assistance.
