Contested Divorce Forum

Try the Contested Divorce Forum if you believe your divorce will be contested, otherwise, try another forum. Contested divorce means that you are finding fault with your ex, or you are the defendant and must defend yourself because you are being accused. My personal experience with divorce is that unless you have a really specific situation (like having a lot of assets to split, abuse or drug use), it sometimes is not worth it to contest--due to the high cost of litigation. That's why most people simply end up with an uncontested divorce!

You should always see for yourself by obtaining free consults with good attorneys in your area. Read law books from your local library's reference section. Read our disclaimer, and further reading below for more info.
