Common Issues that are Contested during a Divorce

Divorce is almost by definition an antagonistic process, and virtually any aspect of the agreement can cause complications. However, some factors more commonly lead to contested cases than others, including:

  • Business interests
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Children with special needs
  • Children from a previous marriage
  • Division of pensions through a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO)
  • Property like real estate, stocks, pensions, art, and antiques

Issues like these can complicate divorce cases and drag the proceedings out much longer than either party would like. Adding to the complexity of these cases is the fact that spouses don’t always act honestly. Some may hide assets in a closely held business to avoid paying their fair share. Others may attempt to hide behind a legally non-binding prenuptial agreement to get out of their obligations.
