Reasons for Contested Divorces

Divorce is quite common in the United States now, with over 50% of marriages ending in divorce. For a variety of reasons, marriages sometimes just don’t work out, and divorce can be a good way to separate and move on with your life. When people decide to get a divorce they can either have an uncontested or a contested divorce. While some people are able to agree on all the divorce terms and pursue an uncontested divorce, far more are unable to reach a complete agreement on one or more issues, resulting in a contested divorce.

If you are considering filing for divorce and have questions or concerns about reaching a settlement that is desirable to you, contact our experienced Monmouth County divorce lawyers at the Law Office of Andrew K. Bestafka, Esq., by calling (732) 898-2378.

Common Issues with Divorce Settlements

Divorce often requires a separation of assets and major life decisions to be made. Frequently, this results in dissension and disagreement between the separating couple. Five of the more commonly contested issues that arise during negotiations include:

  1. Child custody
  2. Child support payments
  3. Alimony / Spousal support
  4. Division of property
  5. Division of assets

These are only some of the potentially contestable aspects of a divorce settlement, and some people are able to reach an agreement regarding them. However, if you and your spouse are having difficulties settling these or other issues, you may want to consider filing for a contested divorce.
