Portland Contested Divorce Attorneys
Our Portland Metro Lawyers are Experienced, Knowledgeable & Prepared
Divorce is rarely an easy process, but it becomes particularly difficult when neither party can agree on key issues surrounding matters such as finances, property and children. When negotiation and mediation are not effective, then these issues will be decided by a judge. This is known as a contested divorce. A contested divorce uses arguments, testimony, and evidence presented in a courtroom to resolve conflicts and complete the process with a Judge.
If you believe your divorce will be contested, then you will need a skilled attorney on your side. Contact Pacific Cascade Family Law to arrange a phone consultation.
Simplifying Complex Contested Divorce
The key issues in any divorce directly affect those matters that are closest to your heart: Your children, home, finances, retirement, and even your pets. It is a complicated process that could significantly change your life. As your lawyer, we take the time to identify what is most important to you and provide legal guidance targeted at meeting those goals.
We also advise you on the most effective and efficient methods for reaching a positive resolution, paying special attention to issues such as:
- Parental rights - Regardless of whether you are a mother or a father, if protecting your parental rights is a primary concern, there is no substitute for solid legal guidance. If an agreement cannot be reached through mediation or negotiation, then the court may require a custody evaluation. No matter the reasons behind the divorce, the state of Oregon will require both parties to take parenting time classes.
- Assets and finances - Property and finances are also issues that must be resolved before finalizing the divorce. This includes dividing property and debt, as well as addressing child and spousal support.
Doing It Right the First Time
The best way to save time, money and the headache of a legal hassle is by making every effort to clearly lay out and pursue your primary objectives upfront. It is extremely complicated and legally messy to attempt to make changes after a divorce has been finalized, child custody is established and court orders are in place. As your divorce firm, we draw on our experience as our team works to protect your interests and meet your legal goals. Pacific Cascade Family Law is accomplished, smart, and caring. We forge relationships with our clients and put them first!
