Be sure you work with a divorce attorney you can trust so you are well prepared for the road ahead and any of its potential legal challenges.

Some of the most common topics of debate in a contested divorce are:

While any divorce can become contested, it is all the more likely to occur for high net worth divorces, such as a divorcing couple that shared a small business together. If you have potentially much to lose in a contested divorce, act quickly in retaining reliable family law representation.
