Contested & Uncontested Divorce
Attorney in Franklin, Tennessee
Understanding Different Types of Divorce
Sometimes both people in a marriage are not ready to accept that their marriage is over, or they want to fight over an important issue—these are considered contested divorces. When both spouses are unable to agree to dissolve the marriage, the consequences are often time-consuming and expensive. At Middle Tennessee Family Law, our Nashville divorce attorney is committed to helping you through your divorce as quickly as possible, with a minimal amount of mental anguish. We work to finalize your divorce as quickly as possible while litigating aggressively to ensure you get the divorce settlement you deserve.
The Difference Between Contested and Uncontested Divorces
Contested divorce issues most often arise when spouses have not discussed issues that may come up in their divorce. If you and your spouse cannot agree on certain issues, then the matter is left up to a judge to make the decision for you. Our Nashville divorce attorney strives to avoid the uncertainty and costs that come from leaving your divorce decree up to a judge. We advocate vigorously to achieve a settlement that both you and your former spouse can live with. The most common issues that are contested in Tennessee divorce proceedings include:

Helping You Avoid the Disadvantage of Contested Divorces
There are countless battles that you can choose to contest in your divorce proceedings. We can file endless motions, requests for documents, and continuances to prolong the time your case spends on the court’s docket. However, the important thing is to think about is what you are fighting over rationally, rather than emotionally. Our Nashville divorce attorney helps you avoid the unnecessary and costly legal battles of a contested divorce. These battles only extend the time it takes for you to move on with your life and potentially limit the financial resources you have to do so. We offer sound legal guidance and reliable strength as you make the difficult decisions that impact the transition into your new life.
