Contested divorces are often portrayed on television, with lawyers battling in court to get their client the biggest slice of the marital pie. In this type of divorce, each spouse hires an attorney who work on their client’s behalf to come up with a final settlement that covers the division of property and child custody issues.

The attorneys go through a process of gathering and exchanging information, pulling in expert opinions and working toward a settlement that both parties can agree to. If the attorneys cannot reach a settlement without involving the courts, a judge will decide how to divide the marital assets and dictate the terms of the child custody arrangement.
