Resolving Complex Divorce Disputes Through Litigation
If divorcing spouses disagree on one or more relevant issues (such as child custody, spousal maintenance or property division), the divorce is considered contested. There are a number of ways to finalize a contested divorce, and it is important to find a solution that meets your specific needs and circumstances.
Guiding Clients Through Contested Divorce And Resolving Divorce-Related Issues
Divorce is different for every couple. It is important for individual spouses to work with an attorney who has the flexibility to meet their unique needs. I am attorney Daniel R. Bacalis, and for nearly four decades, I have been helping people just like you walk through tough divorce-related issues, including:
- Disputes and disagreements related to child custody and visitation
- Ensuring that child support orders are fair and accurate
- Unresolved property division matters
- Whether alimony/spousal maintenance is appropriate and in what amount
- Concerns about domestic violence and child abuse, including false allegations
I use many techniques to try and avoid disagreements in a complex divorce, including divorce mediation and settlement conferences. If these techniques are not successful in settling a divorce, I tenaciously represent my client in divorce litigation. My goal in all cases is to provide clients with cost-effective options that meet their unique needs.
Why Litigation Is Sometimes Necessary
In an ideal world, divorcing couples would not need the help of a judge to intervene in their divorce. It makes the process feel adversarial and ultimately leaves each party with less control over the outcome.
That being said, we do not live in an ideal world. Even if you want to resolve your divorce through mediation or are willing to pursue uncontested divorce, you can’t control whether your spouse chooses to cooperate or not. These litigation alternatives require cooperation and a willingness to negotiate, and these can be difficult to achieve in a particularly contentious divorce.
For your peace of mind, you want to work with a lawyer who has the skills to pursue any divorce scenario, including strong representation in litigation. That’s what you’ll find when you contact my firm.
