Will Your Tennessee Divorce Be Contested?
There are two paths that your divorce in Tennessee may take. The direction you take at the fork in the road between a contested and uncontested divorce will largely depend on the state of affairs in your relationship with your soon-to-be ex-spouse. Can you rationally reason together about things that concern both of you, such as your children, home and finances? Do you share a common understanding of how assets should be divided as your marriage is coming to an end?
If no is the answer to questions such as these, then your divorce is likely to be contested. That is, if you and your spouse are not on speaking terms, are not in agreement about the divorce or cannot discuss terms together, you may have no other option than to take your contested divorce before a judge. You can turn to The Law Office of Martin Sir & Associates with reassurance that we will care for you while also advocating on your behalf.

Contested Divorce: When You Can’t Get Along
Contested divorces are generally more expensive than uncontested divorces, take longer and involve a high degree of emotional turmoil. However, they are also necessary for situations where couples cannot work together to reach decisions concerning their divorce.
Completing a contested divorce will mean appearing in court with a family law advocate to determine the terms for termination of the marriage. With the help of an attorney, you must be ready to fight for your preferences in the terms of the divorce. A judge will then decide on the resolution to your case.
