Finding Effective Solutions For Contested And Uncontested Divorces

Divorce comes in two forms in Arizona: contested and uncontested. Similarly, family law attorneys have two available strategies when working with clients. They may advocate for their clients' rights in court or negotiate a settlement between both parties.

Whatever your need or desired approach, Schneider Law Office in Mesa will help you effectively navigate your family law issues. Attorney Gary Schneider has extensive courtroom experience, advocating fiercely on behalf of his clients. However, when spouses agree on many family law issues, he works to reach a fair compromise that works for both parties.

Uncontested Versus Contested Divorce: The Choice Is Yours

Many clients choose to handle post-divorce matters, such as spousal maintenance, through negotiation. Rule 69 allows parties to a divorce to resolve all their issues between themselves. This provides the benefit of avoiding court altogether, so long as they reach an agreement in writing.

When couples bring these issues before a judge, they will face a final ruling at the judge's discretion. By using direct negotiation, spouses have much greater control over the final decree and disposition.

While settlement can be effective, it is not an option for every couple, particularly those who are in the middle of a highly contentious divorce. You can count on Schneider Law Office to do whatever is required to obtain a fair outcome by advocating for you in court.
