What Is a Contested Divorce?
A contested divorce, also known as a litigated divorce, typically involves each spouse retaining their own attorney, filing a case with the Court before any agreements are reached, and going through the standard steps of a divorce case as dictated by the court. A litigated divorce may or may not require formal discovery and the use of experts, which can be helpful to parties in seeking the truth. A litigated divorce may result in a trial, with smaller hearings along the way, but settlement is almost always on the table. While a litigated divorce can be the most expensive and time-consuming type of divorce, there are many times when it is truly the only good option for a client. The attorneys at Nebraska Legal Group are trained for this type of divorce and will walk their client through this tough time and seek the maximum protections and benefits for him or her every step of the way.
Unlike what you see on television, great litigation attorneys do not shoot from the hip. Rather, it is most often the most prepared attorney who gets great results for their clients, and that preparation starts long before your attorney gets into the courtroom. Our attorneys strive to always be the most prepared attorneys in the courtroom. This is what we are known for in the legal community, and this is how we achieve great results in our clients’ cases.
