Austin Contested Divorce Attorneys

Divorces are difficult for all parties involved and they are rarely solved amicably. The division of assets, child custody, and allocation of debts all need to be agreed upon, and during contested divorces it is often only through intense legal battles that they are settled. Both spouses want to protect their best interests, and the vast personal disagreements that caused the divorce in the first place remain as the largest barrier to achieving an amicable split. Contested divorces are frequently settled through various legal negotiations and settlement conferences, which makes it imperative for a divorcing individual to find strong legal representation to defend their property.

At Kirker Davis LLP, our Austin contested divorce attorneys are dedicated to settling divorces as quickly and hassle-free as possible. We strive to do this while protecting our clients’ best interests and ensuring a fair and equitable distribution of assets and debts.

Common Methods of Settling Contested Divorces

Contested divorces are always emotionally taxing experiences. Couples may feel as if they have been betrayed or wronged, and want to “win” their divorce as a way of expressing their anger towards their spouse. As a result of this mentality, contested divorce cases are frequently lengthy and expensive proceedings. Divorces are best handled in a constructive manner, but that is often not possible when there are contentions that one party refuses to compromise on. There exist many alternative dispute resolutions that many couples should consider before pursuing litigation as a final option. Some of the most common and effective resolutions for contested divorces include:

  • Mediation
  • Arbitration
  • Couple Counseling
  • Consulting family members
  • Settlement Negotiations
  • Litigation

 

These are only some of the numerous methods that a qualified divorce attorney will employ to settle a contested divorce case. Every divorce is different and the circumstances around a divorce may make litigation the only real possible solution to a contested divorce.

    TESTIMONIALS

    • "The divorce process is not an easy one, but I always felt fully supported, informed, and guided by Chris and the staff. Chris always laid out the options, made me aware of the risks, and provided me with recommendations, but he also gave me the flexibility to work out things with my ex where I could, to speed up the process and avoid some legal expenses. I highly recommend Chris for family law representation. ”

    • "I’m a lawyer myself and Holly helped me with my recent divorce. She did an amazing job.
