Florida Contested Divorce

Call (368) 868-4771 to Speak with Our Daytona Beach Divorce Attorney

When both parties agree to all of the terms and conditions of a divorce, they can proceed with an uncontested divorce. However, if one party disagrees with one or more of these items, then it is a contested divorce, which is often more complex and emotionally overwhelming.

If you are facing a contested divorce, it is in your best interest to obtain experienced legal counsel from a skilled divorce attorney. At The Law Offices of Robert Stepniak, we offer experienced representation, affordable prices, and flexible payment plans that fit your needs. We can thoroughly review your case and determine all of your legal options to obtain the most favorable outcome possible.

Contested Divorce Proceedings

A contested divorce takes place when one or both parties in a marriage dispute some or all aspects of their divorce, such as property division, alimony, child custody, and child support. Contested divorces often take much longer to finalize and involved increased legal fees. Furthermore, there is a chance you may have to take your case to trial, which means more money spent on court fees.

The following are the common steps of a contested divorce in Florida:

  • Preparing, filing, and serving the divorce petition
  • Petition response
  • Interview and hire a divorce lawyer
  • Discovery process
  • Pre-trial motions and hearings
  • Meditations
  • Court litigation
