What is a Litigated Divorce?
A litigated divorce is one that is decided by a courtroom judge, rather than between the divorcing parties and their attorneys. When a divorce goes to court, the judge determines how property, custody, and support shall be allocated and the divorce is settled according to the judge’s ruling.
Litigated divorce can be more expensive than mediation and can take longer to settle. However, in some cases, when a spouse is unwilling to compromise, it may be your only option for a fair resolution to your divorce.
