Experienced Contested & Uncontested Divorce Counsel
There are two types of divorce cases our Birmingham divorce attorneys handle: contested and uncontested. The approach will vary depending on the circumstances surrounding the marriage and proposed divorce, primarily based upon whether spouses can reach their own agreements regarding the many issues that must be addressed in their divorce.
These issues may include:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support (alimony)
- Division of assets and property
A contested divorce is not an amicable split. It occurs when spouses have disputes about certain issues. In these cases, it's important to have an attorney who knows the law and knows how to protect a client's best interest. A contested divorce is handled in court, where your attorney must fight for the custody, support, and property division arrangements that you need.
An uncontested divorce occurs when spouses agree on a separation of assets, child support, custody, and spousal support. Guster Law Firm, LLC can handle such paperwork, in house, without either party having to appear in court. We do all of the work for you. Our Birmingham divorce lawyers will make sure the agreement is legally sound and protects your rights and interests.
