Contested Divorce

While there will always be a few disagreements, disputes and discussions regarding the who gets what and how and when during a divorce, if the spouses can come to an agreement of terms without having to go to court, this is considered an "uncontested divorce." Not all divorces have to be ugly and you may easily be able to decipher the division of your marital assets. Abom & Kutulakis, L.L.P. will gladly be there for you as legal representation during these talks to be sure all goes as planned and desired and that all of the legalities are followed for the State of Pennsylvania, but of course, it will be a much easier process.

A contested divorce is where it normally gets a bit complicated. Your divorce attorney from Abom & Kutulakis, L.L.P. will discuss all of the legal ins and outs of this but the main things to consider are the division of marital property and marital assets, the division of marital debts, custody of children and alimony or child support. A contested divorce will result if one of the spouses does not agree to the other's requests in these areas. Disputes like this can force the spouses to end up going in circles with each other instead of actually coming to a resolution.
