What happens when the parties cannot reach an agreement at all on any or all the issues?
When the parties simply cannot reach an agreement then litigation might be necessary. Litigation is a process where the parties ask a Judge to decide one or all aspects of the divorce such as child custody, child support and division of property that the parties cannot resolve. Litigation is a highly adversarial
process that can last more than one year and can be costly to both parties. The outcome on this type of divorce procedures is contingent on legal rules and particular facts of the case. We have represented numerous clients through litigation, achieving court rulings that help them transition to their new future.
