Let our firm help with your contested divorce.
As you may assume, a contested divorce occurs when you and your spouse do not agree regarding one or more aspects of your divorce settlement. A contested divorce can take longer to resolve, but it may be the right option if you have concerns about protecting your interests and coming to a fair settlement with your ex.
The basic format of a contested divorce in Winston-Salem, North Carolina looks like this:
- You prepare, file, and deliver a divorce petition.
- Your spouse responds to the petition.
- You initiate the divorce discovery process, which involves gathering information from your spouse and third-party witnesses.
- You complete pre-trial hearings and legal motions.
- Settlement proposals and negotiations occur between each side’s attorneys.
- If the settlement process does not work, a court trial occurs.
