Contested Divorce

A contested divorce is a divorce in which the two spouses disagree on important issues and cannot resolve their disagreement outside of court. Contested divorces tend to require significant involvement from lawyers.

You may find yourself in the midst of a contested divorce despite your best efforts to work things out amicably. Since so many elements of a divorce can lead to fights and deeply hurt feelings, it is not unusual for you to need the help of a good attorney.

Assertive In Protecting Our Clients' Rights

At Kevin Qualls Family Law, based in Orange, California, we are assertive — not unnecessarily aggressive — in protecting our clients' rights in divorce litigation. As your law firm, we can help you figure out:

  • How to approach the division of assets like real property, business holdings and retirement investments
  • How to resolve contentious custody matters and visitation schedules
  • How to be realistic and fair about child support, whether you expect to pay or receive support
  • How to approach the topic of spousal support (alimony), if applicable
  • How to avoid having to re-do your divorce, custody or support arrangements
  • How to deal with domestic violence or abuse

Being too aggressive in a divorce can cause bitterness and burn bridges that can stay burned for decades. Being lax, unresponsive or apathetic can lead to you being taken advantage of. Our firm can help you strike the right balance in getting the divorce done promptly and correctly — and putting it behind you.
