Douglas County Contested Divorce Lawyers
Contested Divorce Cases in West Georgia
When the two parties involved in a divorce are not able to reach agreement on one or more important issues in a divorce, the process of contested divorce begins. While it is more and more common for people to "represent themselves" in an uncontested divorce, this is strongly urged against in the case of a contested divorce.
A Douglas County divorce lawyer should be consulted and retained if you or your spouse contests any aspect of the divorce. Oftentimes, a settlement can be reached with skilled and experienced negotiation by your attorney or through mediation before the actual trial begins.
There are many advantages to reaching a settlement, which make it worthwhile to be persistent in resolving the points of disagreement. The points of common disagreement include child support and child custody, spousal support, assets and marital property division, debt division, or even the divorce itself.
