Contested Divorce in Utah
Contested Divorces in Utah often involve complicated issues for the parents and the children. The separation of a family is stressful enough, but divorce can lead to financial instability, problems with the children and parents adapting to the new family situation and often require one of the parents to move to a new home or apartment. A contested divorce is a divorce in which the spouses cannot agree to at least one issue that will result from the divorce, whether it is which party gets the home, a car, who will pay the other party for child support, what will the visitation rights be or another issue in the divorce. When the parties cannot agree, the party will often go to court to resolve their differences. With the multiple issues involved in divorce and the fact that both parties tend to see the issues differently, contested divorces are very common despite the encouragement by court for parties to resolve their differences outside of the courtroom to keep cost down. A Utah Contested Divorce Lawyer at Utah Divorce Hotline can effectively represent you through the toughest battles.
Aggressive Representation on Your Side
Contested divorces often require a trial to resolve the issue and allow the judge to view both sides and decide what is in the best interest of the children and how the divorce should be resolved. The cost of trial makes contested divorce a less viable option for those without financial means, but there are ways for a poorer spouse to get her spouse to pay for her attorney’s fees. A contested divorce may be your only chance to get a favorable divorce and in many cases the court will uphold a previous divorce decree over a party seeking to modify the decree later, so it is best to make sure that you get the divorce done right the first time.
