Divorces involve the court. Uncontested irreconcilable difference divorces are a brief appearance, if done right. Contested divorce cases can be an expensive litigation. Winning a contested divorce trial is the second worst result in your divorce case. Losing a contested divorce case is the worst. The costs of litigating a divorce is money lost to both parties and the emotional cost can be multigenerational.
Other than a final trial, divorce cases may include a temporary support hearing, temporary custody hearing, injunction hearing, contempt hearing, and others. Being properly prepared for trial can make the difference between winning and losing.
