Uncontested And Contested Divorce In Texas
At Palmer Lehman Sandberg, PLLC, we understand that each divorce is different. No two couples are the same so no two divorces can be handled in the same way.
Our team of attorneys is experienced in handling both contested and uncontested divorces. We work closely with our clients to devise a customized divorce plan that meets a client’s unique needs.
A contested divorce is any divorce in which both parties have one or more issues on which they cannot agree. Most divorces are contested, as most couples have some disagreements regarding property division, child custody and other divorce-related issues.
When handling a contested divorce, our attorneys strive to provide clients with options that meet their goals throughout the process. We assist in obtaining temporary orders for couples whose divorces are not yet final. We first will attempt to settle, but if a reasonable settlement cannot be reached, we have vast experience in trying family law cases at the courthouse.
For many couples, most of the issues are uncontested, but if the spouses have a disagreement on any issue of significance, the case is not truly an uncontested case.
An uncontested divorce is a divorce in which both parties agree on each and every divorce-related issue. While not always possible, this is generally the most efficient and cost-effective option for couples who wish to divorce.
Our attorneys are trained in the art of assisting clients with an uncontested divorce, including brainstorming creative compromises so that both parties can “win.”
