Contested Divorce

Contested Divorce

Weston Divorce Lawyer

One of the most common misused phrases is “Contested Divorce”.  Since Florida is a “No Fault” state, a contested divorce does not really exist in the sense that one spouse cannot contest or challenge the granting of a divorce.  One spouse does not need the consent or approval of the other spouse to obtain a Final Judgment of Divorce in Florida, including Weston and Pembroke Pines.  There are only two requirements; a period of residency for at least six months prior to the filing of the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage (Divorce) and a sworn admission that the marriage is irretrievably broken (beyond repair).

So when one uses the term “Contested Divorce” they are generally referring to the fact that the parties are unable, at least initially, to reach an agreement as to the issues involved such as alimony or child support.  It is advisable to have an experienced Weston contested divorce lawyer protect your rights and assets.
