Strategic Representation for Divorce Litigation

A litigated divorce, or contested divorce, is the least likely way a couple will dissolve their marriage. However, it is a significant method because it can force resolution. Many other types of divorce, such as uncontested divorce, collaborative divorce, or mediated divorce are available, but all those scenarios require the parties to cooperate in the settlement efforts and engage in respectful communication with each other. If even one of the parties is unwilling or unable to do so, then the case must be taken before a judge for a fully litigated hearing or trial, and the judge decides how the matter will be resolved, thus moving the parties to a final resolution.

At Hathaway Law Group, P.C. L.L.O., our Omaha contested divorce attorneys have the knowledge and skill to effectively guide you through every stage of dissolving your marriage. We have over 20 years of experience and a proven track record of representing clients going through contentious divorces.

When Contested Divorce Is Necessary in Omaha

Although many couples would prefer to dissolve their marriage without needing to go to court to have a judge make decisions for them, sometimes this is the inevitable path they must take.

You may require a contested divorce when:

  • Your spouse refuses to proceed with the divorce – In some cases, there may be one side that, for whatever reason, refuses to move the case along. They may be resisting the divorce altogether, or their obstinate behavior may be rooted in something else. Nevertheless, it can cause delays and stress for the party wishing to move the divorce along swiftly and efficiently. If you face a person that acts like this, then court may be your only remedy, and your legal representative can turn to the judge to ask for your desired relief.
  • You and your spouse disagree on one or more issues – In some cases maybe only one or two issues are causing the conflict, the court may be needed to resolve these contested and disputed issues. If your case proceeds to trial, it is not necessary that the judge decides every issue between you and your spouse. For instance, you and your spouse may settle many of your issues but have disagreements on just a couple of things. In that situation, a trial can be had only on those specific things. It is common that the parties resolve everything except for an issue on a particular piece of property or maybe a parenting conflict. In that case, the judge will then allow a trial on those specific points, and the parties and their lawyers proceed to court on those limited matters. Once the judge decides those issues for the parties, the result from the judge and the previous settlement agreement can be combined to draft the final divorce decree.

Doing What’s Right for Your Situation

Court is nothing to fear. However, you may want to try to avoid it by resolving your case in other ways, such as, through settlement and negotiation. However, if those efforts fail to resolve your case, our well-trained contested divorce lawyers in Omaha can take your case before the court and advocate the results you desire.
