Ontario Contested Divorce Lawyers
We Can Protect Your Rights & Interests
Before a divorce can be finalized, spouses must agree on specific issues related to their children (if they have any), property and assets, and spousal support. If they cannot agree, the divorce is considered contested. It is important to note that a contested divorce can be resolved with or without a trial. There are different methods that may be utilized to move from a contested to uncontested divorce, which can be completed without a trial in court. Mediation and arbitration are useful tools to resolve divorce-related disputes. If divorcing spouses do not wish to attempt an alternative method of dispute resolution, however, they must proceed to court and if they still cannot resolve the matter then ultimately they may have a trial.
