Contested Divorce May Be Your Only Option

While uncontested divorce saves a great deal of time and money for divorcing parties, it may not be the best option for everyone. Unless there is absolute agreement about every facet of child custody, support, property division and other aspects of the marriage, contested divorce may be necessary.

California Law has certain procedural requirements for granting any type of divorce and depending on the circumstances, various court documents will need to be filed for a contested divorce such as a petition asking the court to grant divorce, Declaration of Finances and others. Hearings and trial dates may also have to be requested and evidence and details will have to be gathered and effectively presented. A Los Angeles contested divorce attorney can help with every step of the process and offer guidance throughout.

Many divorce petitions start out with the intent of an uncontested divorce but these often develop into contested divorces. Los Angeles Contested Divorce Attorney Elena Mebtahi will assess the priorities of your personal situation, evaluate what is worth maintaining in an agreement and determine if an uncontested divorce serves your interests best. If a contested divorce is the best path forward and aggressive legal strategies are necessary, our law firm is more than prepared.

Whether a Los Angeles contested divorce or uncontested divorce is in your future, you need wise legal counsel from an attorney who will always put your needs first. No matter how complex your financial situation, your parental arrangement or how difficult your relationship
