York Contested Divorce Attorney

Representation in a Contested Divorce

An uncontested divorce is one in which both parties agree to dissolve their marriage. Agreements are worked out regarding asset distribution, alimony and, in cases involving minor children, custody and support.

In a contested divorce, the parties are unable to come to an agreement on the terms of their divorce. A contested divorce can cause considerable turmoil in areas such as:

  • Property distribution
  • Responsibility for debts
  • Spousal maintenance
  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Visitation

Hiring a York divorce lawyer is often necessary to help resolve these issues, and for competent representation during your hearing. When a divorce is contested, it is important that your rights and interests are protected by a legal specialist with divorce experience.

Divorce cases involving significant assets can quickly become contentious, usually due to disagreements over:

  • The classification of personal versus marital property
  • The value of the property
  • The fair distribution of assets
  • The contributions made by each spouse during the marriage
