Divorce – Uncontested and Contested

There are two types of divorce – uncontested and contested.  In an uncontested divorce, the couple should seek the help of a matrimonial attorney who can file the paperwork dissolving the marriage.  In the few cases of uncontested divorce, the couple can equitably agree on division of marital property.

In a contested divorce, both parties may be emotional and angry, especially if abuse or infidelity was involved.  A matrimonial law firm in Houston can create a plan that makes you feel comfortable.  The majority of divorce cases are contested with couples disagreeing on many family-related topics such as alimony, child custody, child support, and visitation.

Kay Polk’s Houston matrimonial law firm also deals with other divorce related issues, including annulments, separation of marital property and debts, military divorce, and relocation.  If you are thinking of getting married or contemplating divorce, contact Kay Polk Attorney at Law through our Web form or call 713-266-0846.
