Understanding When to Consider Divorce Litigation

Divorce litigation is when a couple submits their divorce issues to court to be decided by a judge. It most often occurs when a couple cannot resolve their divorce by other means. We know that the prospect of litigating your divorce in court is overwhelming. Going before a judge can be incredibly stressful, but there are many cases in which it is not only the best option but may help resolve your divorce more quickly. In very contentious divorces, things can drag out. Litigation may be the only way these couples can resolve their disputes once and for all.

Divorce litigation may be your best option in cases where:

  • You and your spouse struggle to agree on several aspects of your divorce
  • One party is being unreasonable or is unwilling to explore other dispute resolution methods like mediation
  • You and your spouse are unable to communicate or work together amicably during the divorce process
  • You and your spouse have tried other means of dispute resolution and have been unsuccessful
  • There have been instances of domestic violence or abuse

Divorce litigation can be a difficult process, both emotionally and practically. If you are facing litigation in divorce court, you should secure legal representation from an attorney experienced in divorce litigation, like ours at SANTO MEHAS, A Professional Law Corporation.
