A divorce is contested if one, or both, of the parties cannot agree to the terms of the divorce. The terms which one or both Parties may be unable to agree include child custody / child visitation (now known as “Time-Sharing” in the State of Florida), child support, alimony and/or non-payment of alimony, and identification of and/or distribution of the marital assets and/or liabilities. A contested divorce is the most common form of divorce. In these cases, proceedings are filed and, if the Parties are unable to settle by negotiations and/or mediation prior to initiation of the action, the commencement of and/or continuation of litigation may be necessary. Here at SHAMY, EL FADEL & MAHONE, we will zealously advocate your position as to how to identify and fight for your rights to marital assets/liabilities, the valuing of marital assets/liabilities, division of marital assets/liabilities, and parenting plans for child custody and visitation (now known as Time-sharing in the State of Florida) with Minor Child(ren), child support, as well as, alimony, if applicable.
