Filing for divorce is a very challenging time, filled with emotion and a large number of legal and financial considerations for Georgia residents. Adequate preparation for the divorce process is the key to a quicker, easier, and less expensive divorce for all the parties involved, and having experienced family attorneys who understand the issues and are prepared to fight to protect your interests, if necessary, can make all the difference.
When you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement regarding property division, child custody, visitation, child support, and/or any other issue, the divorce will be contested. In a contested divorce, both parties, with the help of their attorneys, work on negotiating their issues to reach a solution. In a contested divorce, the issues to be decided may include:
- How the marital property will be divided?
- How the debts will be managed?
- Who will have primary custody of your children?
- How visitation of the children will be handled?
- How the financial support of children will be managed?
- How any alimony will be handled?
All of these issues must be resolved before the parties can finalize their divorce, whether settled by the parties or tried in court. A contested divorce involves complications between you and your spouse. The attorneys, representing you and your spouse, will try to resolve all the matters that are involved in your divorce, and if needed, will take the case to the court for a judgment.
To successfully negotiate with your spouse and ensure that you settle all disputes regarding property, debt, custody, visitation, child support, and/or alimony in a way that your interests are protected, you need the assistance of an experienced divorce attorney.
