Punta Gorda Family Law Attorneys Equipped To Handle Contested Divorce Cases

As a “no-fault divorce” state, Florida allows individuals to file for divorce whether or not their spouse agrees to do so. Dissolution of a marriage could be granted solely on the fact that the marriage is “irretrievably broken,” or due to mental incapacity on the part of one of the spouses. Even so, if one spouse objects to obtaining the divorce or is in disagreement with any of the terms, it is a contested divorce and will likely require each spouse to argue for a fair settlement in court. This means that uncontested divorce requires litigation and is in contrast to uncontested divorce, which is accomplished through mediation or collaboration.

Handling Contested Divorces Calmly And Efficiently

Many cases of divorce litigation escalate to heated arguments, which is why most people assume contested divorce to be less desirable than uncontested divorce.

This is often the case, but even contested divorce can be handled calmly and efficiently with the representation of a skilled Punta Gorda divorce lawyer.
