Columbus Contested Divorce Lawyers

Helping Clients Throughout Central Ohio

Getting a divorce is never an easy decision, and the legal process of divorcing can be even more complicated if your spouse contests your choice to end the marriage or does not agree with you on how your lives will look post-divorce. Opposition in a contested divorce can make it difficult to make final decisions about property division, child custody and support, and other arrangements. If you are facing the prospect of going through a contested divorce, the skilled legal team at Kemp, Schaeffer & Rowe can help.

What is Contested Divorce?

When a couple splits up, the divorce will either be considered as “contested” or “uncontested.” A contested divorce is a divorce in which the spouses do not agree on how to resolve issues. This may be something like disagreeing on who is entitled to a certain piece of property or not finding a child visitation schedule that works for everyone involved. In the worst cases, contested divorces can be very complex and contentious.

Issues that May Be Present in a Contested Divorce Case

Ending a marriage often involves more than choosing to separate from your spouse. In addition, you must reach some kind of agreement with your former partner on a range of issues. If agreements are not initially reached, your divorce is considered contested.

The following issues will likely need to be addressed as part of a contested divorce case:

  • Grounds for divorce
  • Property division
  • Spousal support (sometimes also called alimony)
  • Child custody
  • Child support
