Unfortunately, there are many situations where a divorce cannot be resolved amicably. When too much damage has been done and both parties are unwilling to budge on certain elements of divorce, a judge will need to decide the outcome.

We offer exceptional representation on a personalized level, and we take the time to understand your case and work toward your specific goals.

What Is Contested Divorce?

While it is always desirable to see couples part ways peacefully, our Phoenix divorce lawyer also knows that some divorces are bitter and some spouses are out for revenge. At the Law Office of Steven N. Cole, we know when to approach peacefully with an uncontested divorce, but we are not afraid to use aggressive tactics when necessary. Our contested divorce lawyer in Phoenix offers free case evaluations, so you can determine which course of action is right for you.

Contesteddivorce occurs when any or some of the following elements cannot be agreed on:

There are also other elements that may arise in your divorce situation that must be addressed. When you and your spouse are unable to agree on these issues, the judge presiding over your case will make a decision regarding your individual needs. Where children are involved, the judge will make a decision based on the needs and best interests of the child.
