In Fort Lauderdale, Florida, contested divorce lawyer Deborah Bianchi Tracht has extensive trial experience, is results-driven and knows what it takes to keep focused on client objectives in family law disputes. She will not settle for less than what you are entitled to under the law.
In divorce, it is easy to get wrapped up in the decisions being made and let emotions lead how those decisions are handled. While in many cases divorce can be resolved more efficiently and cost-effectively through a negotiated divorce agreement, in other situations this approach does not achieve the client’s goal, nor does it protect his or her interests.
WHAT MAKES A DIVORCE CONTESTED?
Florida divorce lawyers and judges apply the PEACE acronym to divorce cases. While this acronym describes the manner in which most lawyers and judges hope cases can be handled, it also highlights the relevant issues to be decided in divorce, whether contested or uncontested:
- Parental issues such as child custody, time sharing, visitation and special needs
- Equitable distribution of property, assets and debts (property division)
- Alimony, also known as spousal support or spousal maintenance
- Child support obligations
- Everything else, including prenuptial agreements, domestic violence and attorneys’ fees
In an uncontested divorce, all aspects of the divorce must be agreed upon by both parties to be considered uncontested. If any of the matters are disputed, the case must be filed in court as a contested divorce. However, if a full divorce agreement — detailing child custody (time sharing), property division, spousal support, child support and all other issues — can be reached through negotiation, mediation or other form of alternative dispute resolution, the case can be converted into an uncontested divorce.
