What is a contested divorce?

When spouses are unable to agree on the terms of their divorce, they must go to a family court where the judge will be responsible for making decisions on their behalf. Because the fate of your children, assets, and finances are in the hands of someone else, it is essential to ensure the attorney you have representing you is one who truly cares about protecting your interests and rights.

Common issues that must be addressed in a contested divorce include:

  • Child custody: The judge will begin with the presumption that it is best for the children to have frequent and continuous contact with both parents after divorce. Judges will typically try to establish joint custody arrangements; however, the exact terms of custody will be determined by focusing on what is in the best interests of the children.
  • Child support: Both parents will be required to support their children, even after the divorce. The amount of child support granted will primarily depend on each parent's income and other resources, and how much time each parent spends with the children.
  • Property division: California is a community property state. This means that any income earned by either spouse during the marriage and all property bought with those earnings is considered marital property. This property is owned equally by each spouse or partner and must be divided accordingly.

Another common matter that can lead to arguments between divorcing spouses is determining spousal support. Whether you need assistance working out a child custody, visitation, child support, property division, or spousal support matter, we stand ready to assist you.
