What Is Divorce Litigation?

In divorce litigation, lawyers and clients use the public courts to resolve issues that arise in their cases and ultimately let the judge decide. It is a formal, adversarial process that pits the attorneys on each side against each other to achieve their clients' objectives.

In litigation, the atmosphere is generally not conducive to settling the matter without court intervention, and any settlement is generally based on the parties' fear of litigation as opposed to the parties' legitimate interests and goals.

Our divorce lawyers will help you:

  • Advocate for your objectives. For example, if you want temporary child support while your divorce is pending, but your spouse refuses to pay for it, we'll use your circumstances and our knowledge of the law and courts to determine how we can achieve this objective. We'll make requests of the Court based on your unique needs.
  • Complete the necessary legal steps to close your litigation. Our divorce litigation attorneys will help you move through the divorce and litigation processes from beginning to end. We'll help you through "discovery," during which our lawyers will gather information about your and your spouse's case. We'll also prepare the necessary paperwork and provide you with step-by-step guidance, so you know upfront which hearings, preparation methods, and expenses will be required of you.
  • Handle a high-conflict divorce. In litigation, emotional stresses can bring out the worst in both sides—and sometimes that's a very ugly "worst." Our lawyers will stay calm, keep your case moving forward and stay focused on your goals, regardless of the level of animosity that exists between you and your spouse.

Litigation may be especially appropriate in situations in which the spouses are extremely angry, abusive, or contentious with each other, and one spouse controls most of the resources, decision making, or other power point of the marriage. The parties never have to communicate or even see each other unless in the courtroom.

Again, the parties let the judge determine the outcome and terms of their divorce decree instead of working it out themselves. Litigation is still the most common way of obtaining a divorce today, and the attorneys at Hance Law Group, PC, practice litigation in their clients' cases every day.
