Contested Divorce in Thousand Oaks

Seek Experienced Legal Counsel from Our Thousand Oaks Family Law Attorney

When both spouses involved in a divorce agree to every single term and condition of the final divorce agreement, they are eligible to undergo an uncontested divorce. However, when a couple is unable to agree on one, two, or every term of a divorce, this is considered a contested divorce. It can be challenging for both parties to come to an agreement and it is typically necessary for each side to obtain legal representation from qualified lawyers.

With more than 30 years of experience, I can help you navigate the complexities of the divorce process while you prepare for the next chapter of your life.

Contested Divorce Proceedings

In most cases, contested divorce is often more difficult in comparison to an uncontested divorce because of the multiple factors that need to be addressed. The length of a case is typically long, taking several months or even years. If both parties are not able to come to a divorce agreement, then the court will make the decision for them.

The following are the various steps involved in a contested divorce in Thousand Oaks:

  • Prepare, file and serve the petition for divorce
  • Response to petition
  • Obtain the legal services of an attorney
  • Undergo the discovery process
  • Pre-trial motions and hearings
  • Agreement proposals and negotiations between both spouses and their lawyers
  • If settlement fails, preparation for court litigation
  • Complete a trial
  • If there is a dispute in the judge’s decision, then appeal
