Our Approach to Contested Divorce

We Promote Your Best Interests Throughout a Contested Divorce

Contested Divorce. These words understandably cause stress and worry for many clients. At Powell Law Offices, P.C., we have extensive experience with contested divorces, and we are prepared to walk with you through each step of the process. Our goal is to reduce the stress you are going through, in every stage of divorce, whether amicable or highly contested. Our priority is understanding your goals from the beginning so that we can leverage our extensive experience and knowledge to get you the best possible results, both during and after your case.

What is a Contested Divorce?

A contested divorce means that when the divorce is filed, there are still issues that both parties haven’t agreed upon, such as spousal support, division of marital assets, child support or child custody. If the parties are unable to reach an agreement at some point during the life of the case, a court will eventually decide these matters for everyone involved.

Although a trial may be inevitable in situations where parties are unable to agree, throughout your divorce, our attorneys will creatively work in good faith to attempt to resolve the issues of your case in a way that saves you time, stress and money wherever possible. When reaching an amicable solution is not possible, we will utilize our proven legal skills to actively pursue your best interests.

A Contested Divorce may be Right for Your Situation

Every client and situation is unique. The decision to reach an amicable solution prior to trial or move forward with a trial before a court is dependent upon your situation. Whether your case will proceed in a contested manner depends upon your personal and family goals, and some cases may need to proceed to trial in order to reach a resolution that is in your best interest. In some cases, a trial may be necessary to protect your future by fighting to defend your financial situation or to protect the best interest of your children. No matter the situation, our attorneys are prepared to walk with you through every step of your case.

We tailor our representation to meet your individual needs. If you require tough, aggressive representation in and out of court, we are prepared to zealously advocate for every client. We never needlessly prolong divorce and always work proactively to find effective solutions, but our ultimate goal is to help you move forward successfully at all times during your case. Contested or uncontested, we will walk with you throughout the life of your case and tailor our approach to advocate for your best interest.
