What Happens in Court?

By nature of a contested divorce, the couple's settlement has not been arranged prior to arriving at court. This means that the court will conduct hearings to understand the best interests and needs of both spouses, then make a judgment.

In a divorce judgment, the court will decide on the following:

The judge's final judgment will have lasting effects a spouse's future and their relationship with their children.

Modifying the Divorce Arrangements

One of the greatest dangers of going into a contested divorce without careful preparation and legal protection is ending up with a divorce settlement that puts you in a difficult position with financial strains or an unfair arrangement of child custody or child support. Fortunately, modifications can be made to some aspects of a final divorce decree. This is to protect spouses from an unfair settlement arrangement due to error or fraud, and also to recognize the changing circumstances that parents undergo in their separate lives.

Mediating Contested Divorces

Oftentimes, divorcing spouses in a contested divorce are required to attend and participate in mediation. Some contested divorces may be resolved without lengthy court procedures and heated disputes. Mediation is one alternative that allows spouses to resolve their issues outside of court with the help of a third-party mediator.

In mediation, many hassles and expenses of courtroom procedure are avoided, and healthy communication is frequently fostered through these methods. At Henrickson & Sereebutra, we know that your divorce calls for a personalized approach. We are prepared to help our clients find positive solutions, whether in court or outside of court.
