If your case enters litigation, the assistance of a skilled divorce attorney will be vital

How to Work with Your Divorce Lawyer

Separating from your spouse can be a stressful time to say the least. There are many tasks involved in disentangling your common assets and responsibilities and setting up your own separate lives. Sometimes parties can’t agree on a fair way to do this. Fortunately, you can defend your rights and ensure your spouse complies with their responsibilities by enlisting the assistance of a skilled divorce attorney to represent you in litigation.

What is Litigation?

Divorce litigation refers to a legal action that occurs through the courts when two spouses or parents separate and cannot agree on the terms. If the parties cannot agree on issues such as spousal support, child custody, or distribution of property, litigation often arises so the court can settle the issues. During litigation, both parties present evidence, which may be in the form of witnesses, testimony, or financial documents. The court considers the evidence to make a determination on the contested matters.

Litigation is generally more expensive than settling outside of court, since the parties incur greater legal fees and court costs. When possible, many individuals try to avoid litigation by working with arbitrators or mediators who aim to facilitate a settlement by helping the parties discuss their desires and compromise. Litigation, however, is sometimes unavoidable.
