Contested Divorce is handled very differently now than they once were. Not so many years ago, divorces were not as common and the law required that one spouse or the other must prove grounds for divorce. Now, if ultimately an agreement is reached on all issues between the parties including, in a divorce with children, a Permanent Parenting Plan, a divorce can be granted on Irreconcilable Differences. While the vast majority of divorces are granted on the ground of Irreconcilable Differences they certainly could not have been characterized as Uncontested Divorces.

A Contested Divorce can stem from Adultery. This is a legal ground for Contested Divorce, but can be expensive or hard to prove. It may be necessary to do so, in order to prove that a spouse is either hiding money or assets, or is dissipating marital assets by spending them on the Paramour. If you know your spouse is having an affair that they refuse to admit to, it can be easy for an attorney to allow you to spend thousands of dollars, often unnecessarily, in an effort to prove it. In many cases this compounds the deterioration of the relationship between parents as a result of unnecessary and embarrassing probing into the adulterous relationship. While it can be somewhat satisfying and can make you feel vindicated for having suspected the affair, this can cause a divorce to cost tens of thousands of dollars more than necessary. You should consult with an experienced attorney who has your best interests at heart to determine the extent to which proving adultery may affect the outcome of your divorce.

BEWARE OF ATTORNEYS who promise to see you vindicated and who prey upon your wounded emotional state, telling you what you want hear, but not what the ultimate cost will be to you, your children or your financial position.

Contested divorces can stem also from financial pressure placed on families by a weakened economy, poor consumer choices and a Housing Value Crisis. For some families, consulting a bankruptcy attorney before consulting a divorce attorney could bring you the peace for which you are searching. Bankruptcy is not a decision, it is a dollar figure. If you are there, contact a Bankruptcy Attorney who can help you decide if that is what your family needs. Here at Milazo Law, P.C. we do not practice Bankruptcy Law.

Sometimes the complexity of a High-Asset Divorce can cause an otherwise simple divorce to become complicated and therefore contested. When there are several retirement accounts, 401(K) accounts, many pieces of real estate, vacation homes or condos, or other expensive luxury items it can be easy for one spouse to hide money from the other. Even when neither party is hiding money, when high income or high-asset individuals go through the divorce process suspicion of the lesser earning spouse may lead to accusations and other complicating factors. An experienced divorce attorney who has handled countless contested divorces can meet with you and after careful examination of your specific situation can help you determine a fair division of your assets and can fight for you if necessary to achieve the best possible outcome for you in a divorce.
