Need a Divorce Lawyer in Orlando to Handle a Contested Case?

A contested divorce is any divorce where a case has been filed and the parties to the divorce are not in total agreement on how the issues in the case should be resolved. The most common legal issues that can cause an Orlando divorce attorney to go through contested litigation are child custody issues, child support issues, spousal support, the division of assets, and division of debts. The most common of these is child custody in divorce.

The most common argument for custody issues comes when one parent accuses the other of being unsafe, thus, requiring a more limited time-sharing schedule with the children involved in the case. This is commonly due to accusations of substance abuse, domestic violence, and neglect of children to name a few.

In this type of situation, the divorce lawyers will argue over the amount of time the children spend with each parent in the case. Some parents attempt to seek more time with the children as this has a direct impact on the child support amount that will be ordered in the case. This often leads to divorcing parents making the types of allegations discussed above.

Other types of issues that can lead to a contested divorce include when the parties formed a business during the marriage,  there is a claim for alimony, and where a party is self-employed and there is a question about accurate income.
