A contested divorce means that you and your spouse cannot agree to the division of your assets, debts, time with your children, and support issues. Most likely, a Court will decide those issues if you cannot come to an agreement. The process begins with the filing of the initial pleadings in the matter and automatic financial disclosure by both parties. The process moves on to the mediation phase and then onto litigation and trial, if necessary.
Mediation is an important part of the divorce process. Preparation for the mediation conference and understanding your goals is vital. The family law attorney at Catania Legal Group, LLC in Orlando, Florida takes this process very seriously and you will be fully prepared for mediation by your attorney, personally. It is very important to understand that even if your case does not settle at mediation, the process is a great time to learn the other sides position – what issues are they hanging their hat on, why they feel a certain way about a time-sharing issue, etc. We at Catania Legal Group, LLC in Orlando, Florida know how to use this information to assist in framing your case and future discovery issues.
