Contested Divorce

/Contested Divorce

If you and your spouse are unable to reach an agreement as to the terms of your divorce, you will need to file a complaint for Divorce. Once filed, the Complaint is served on the opposing party and you have effectively initiated a lawsuit for a divorce.

The Law Offices of Andriea A. Aden, Esq., can assist you in preparing, filing, and serving all of the necessary paperwork, as well as the entire contested divorce process.

The average time period for a contested divorce is nine months to a year and can involve up to three court hearings, including the initial Case Management Conference, the Settlement Conference, and, if the parties are still unable to reach an agreement, a contested divorce trial.

Retainers for a contested divorce matter are $5,000 in Washoe County, $7,500 if outside Washoe County (Northern Nevada only). Call 775-622-9245 to schedule your consultation.
