About Florida Contested Divorce
Some divorce issues are often more contested than others. One of these issues is the equitable distribution of assets and debt, which is sometimes referred to as property division. All property acquired during the marriage, or marital property, is subject to division among the parties. When there are many assets involved in a high-asset divorce or a lifetime of wealth accumulated in long-term marriage divorce, this already complex divorce issue can become highly complicated. Another issue often contested between divorcing spouses is time sharing in a parenting plan, with heated disputes over child custody and visitation. Alimony is also commonly disputed, with one side claiming that he or she needs and deserves spousal support while the other side seeks to avoid being held liable to pay.
Even if a divorce has been filed as a contested divorce, it is not too late to attempt to reach a resolution through mediation. In fact, the courts require contesting divorce parties to make an attempt to settle the case through mediation before a trial date can be set. We can help you explore mediation and other alternative dispute resolution options if you are interested. Call us today to learn more!
