Contested divorces cost more than an uncontested divorce because of additional legal fees to cover extended discovery and court appearances as well as other associated court costs such as mediation.
The majority of contested divorces are settled before the final hearing and it isn’t necessary for a judge to make decisions for the divorcing parties. A contested divorce can go smoothly if both parties work with their attorneys to find an equitable solution to divide marital property and debts. RS Law has experience helping clients to understand their rights and obligations in making these decisions.
One of the biggest problems with the divorce process is that a divorce is almost always a very emotional time. Having a lawyer to guide you through divorce process takes the emotion out of it. RS Law will deal with the nuts and bolts of the divorce while you handle the emotional aspects of the divorce.
Fair isn’t always a 50/50 split and RS Law will handle the business side of the divorce and make sure you have made informed decisions as to what your legal rights are in a divorce. You don’t know what you don’t know until it is too late. Not hiring an attorney to represent you in a divorce can be the most expensive mistake you can make.
