Any divorce is difficult, but the process becomes even more complicated when spouses cannot agree on the terms of the divorce. This is known as contested divorce. This situation that typically results in the parties going to court to resolve the various issues of their divorce.

WHAT MAKES A DIVORCE “CONTESTED”?
Essentially, a contested divorce is one in which the separating spouses cannot agree on one or more matters related to the divorce. Disagreeing on even one aspect of your divorce will lead to a judge deciding on this issue in court. In addition to multiple hearings, an especially contentious split can result in a full-on divorce trial.
You may be facing a contested divorce if you and your spouse cannot agree on any of the following:
- Where your shared children will live
- Who is responsible for child support payments
- How much time the other parent can spend with your child
- How any shared property will be divided
- Who will be assigned which debts
- If a piece of real property is marital or separate property
- How much spousal support should be paid and by whom
- How the various assets of your marriage will be divided
- How a shared business will be divided
- Any other issue related to your marriage/divorce
Clearly, a contested divorce can become incredibly complicated, not to mention emotional for the parties involved. During this time, it’s crucial to have a skilled attorney who can act as an objective voice of reason while fighting for your rights.

What Our Clients Say
THE STORIES THAT MATTER MOST
“Having to navigate the court system plus divorce and all the emotions associated with that, I was feeling massively overwhelmed. A friend of mine told me that mediation might be a better solution since my partner, and I were getting the divorce under mutual terms. After a Google search we found Otto Family Law “Divorce in a Day” service. Speaking with Lauren Otto she completely put our minds at ease and gave us that breath of fresh air that we needed. The whole process is simple and takes away a lot of the worry and confusion. Lauren was always willing to answer any question we had and easily explained anything we had worries about. I don’t plan on getting another divorce, however if I find myself in this situation again, I know exactly who I am calling.”
“I had a great experience with Otto and Steiner .. They were patient with my payments and worked with me but made me aware ahead of time I needed to get this done in a timely manner and understanding .. I would recommend them to anyone and definitely go to them in my future if I needed to. Thank you Attorney Otto.”
“Thank you Lauren for helping us get visitation with our granddaughter. The first visit was awesome. We could not have done it without you.”
“Very professional, lots of knowledge. Helped me in my custody situation and went step by step how everything works. Did an awesome job.”
“I would definitely recommend Lauren Otto for family law! She has been a great attorney for me and my 2 daughters. I’m still currently going through a long and rough divorce. Otto was able to have my girls returned to me from their mother, who left one day and went 4 states away. I was able to get physical placement and sole custody! I honestly could not have asked or found a better more caring and professional attorney! I would highly recommend her, to anyone going through a divorce.”
