When Your Divorce Requires Litigation For Resolution
Sometimes divorce is necessary to resolve the relational conflict between spouses, but simply because it is necessary does not mean it is always easy. Each spouse has their own interests in mind, and this can lead to clashing opinions.

The Ups And Downs Of Divorce Litigation
Most couples hope to avoid divorce litigation if at all possible. When it does occur, it is typically over hot-button issues, such as child support or custody or finances. Depending on the circumstances, litigation can last up to two years. This puts a strain on all family members involved.
Maryland divorce litigation requires both spouses to have the representation of an attorney and if children are involved, an attorney may be selected on behalf of the children. It is typically more advantageous to try and work things out outside of the courtroom. Some of the disadvantages of divorce litigation include:
- More costly in the long run
- Often very adversarial in nature
- Decision-making is left to outside third parties
- Confidentiality is slim to none
Privacy is often prized very highly in divorce proceedings. When divorce litigation is involved, trials and hearings are open to the public. This alone can add to the stress and confusion of the situation.
However, it is not always possible, or in your best interest, to avoid court. If your divorce does end up in the throes of litigation, I am equipped to work with you, protect your interests and fight for what you deserve.
