A contested divorce happens when the married partners cannot agree, either about separating or ending the marriage or about the terms. Often times there are disagreements and arguments about the division of property and assets, allocation of debts, spousal support (or alimony), child support, custody of children and parenting time. Such a situation typically becomes a court battle and, as such, a contested divorce is generally more expensive for the couple.
When a couple cannot come to an agreement on one or several issues related to their divorce, it is contested. Grounds must be proven and corroborated. A Dayton contested divorce is comprised of partners unable to agree even with the assistance of attorneys and/or mediators. Because an agreement cannot be reached between the parties, the issues must be taken up in court where a judge decides the outcome.
