Complex Issues and Advocacy in Contested Divorce

A contested divorce is any case that is filed in court for any reason that allows a female to file a notice for pendente lite (this is a Latin term for “while the litigation is pending”).

If you are entering divorce, you want experienced advocacy from the outset to protect your personal, financial, and professional interests.

Adultery in Contested Divorce Cases

If there is an issue of adultery in your case, it is important to take action as soon as possible to minimize the impact on your rights and your family. Remember that Facebook and other social media pages can be used in court as evidence if you have been accused of adultery.

The Need for Men’s Rights Advocacy

You may feel that the system is stacked against you as a man. If you aren’t aware of this, know that there are “all women’s” divorce advocacy groups and other organizations that work to limit men’s rights in court. When in a contested divorce, you could face aggressive litigators and opponents who will fight hard to limit your rights, even when it is not in the best interests of you or your family. You need an advocate who can successfully leverage men’s rights and bring balance back to the legal system.
