Contested Divorce in Austin

Contested divorce can get ugly in some circumstances. It is often a long drawn out battle that can be unpleasant. With the watchful guidance given by a Texas divorce lawyer from our firm, you will be helped throughout the complete process. We will work with you closely until and amicable agreement can be reached. A contested divorce can refer to a couple of different scenarios.

  1. One party to the proceedings does not believe that there are sufficient grounds for a divorce. In this scenario, one party or the other does not want the divorce. A contested divorce will require the services of a competent attorney. After the petition for dissolution of marriage has been filed, either party can request a court hearing to dispute or formalize the grounds for divorce.
  2. One or both parties do not agree to the terms of the divorce. In this scenario, both parties have agreed that the proceedings should take place, but they believe that the terms are unacceptable. Disputes may include things such as alimony, property ownership, child custody, joint business ventures, or other things that the parties are not happy with. This scenario is the most common type of contested divorce.

Any type of contested divorce proceedings can take months, if not years to resolve. You should never attempt to represent yourself in these types of proceedings. A knowledgeable lawyer from our Evans Law Group Austin, Texas law office will have years of experience in representing both petitioners and respondents in these types of cases.
