Lawyers Advocating For You In Contested Divorce

Divorces in the United States are often contested, which means that both parties have significant differences in one or more divorce matters. Contested divorce can be stressful and emotionally overwhelming, which is why having an experienced and skilled family lawyer on your side can help you navigate the legal complexities while you get ready for the next chapter of life. With more than 55 years of combined experience, our Richmond divorce lawyers at DeFazio Bal understand what it takes to protect your best interests until you obtain the outcome you desire.

Experienced And Reliable Legal Counsel

If both parties cannot come to an agreement on all matters of divorce, then the court must make a final decision. A judge will review your case and take into consideration a variety of marriage factors, such as the financial standing and education of each party, and their involvement in their children's lives. Contested divorce can be a long and drawn-out process, requiring months or even years to resolve.

The following are common legal steps in contested divorce:

  • Discovery process
  • Collecting evidence
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Settlement proposals and negotiations
  • Pretrial motions and hearings
  • Trial motions
  • Closing arguments
