Burbank Contested Divorce Attorneys
Can a Divorce be Contested in California?
Divorce proceedings usually begin when a spouse (referred to as the "petitioner") files a petition for Dissolution of Marriage. This petition requests the court to officially dissolve the marriage, and assist in resolving issues related to the divorce, including:
- Custody of any children
- Visitation arrangements
- Child support payments
- Alimony payments, and the
- Distribution of marital property and assets
Should the other spouse (or "respondent") and the petitioner fail to agree on terms of the separation, then the divorce is considered "contested," and requires the intervening of the court to solve the matter in a trial.
If you are considering divorce, and anticipate that you will not be able to agree on terms with your spouse, or if you are already in the middle of a contested divorce in California, it is strongly urged that you contact a divorce attorney right away. An attorney can represent you in a divorce trial, and fight on your behalf for terms that meet your needs and the needs of your family.
