Preparing for a Contentious Divorce in Louisville - Proven Family Lawyers

Preparing for a Contentious Divorce in Louisville

Are you considering the end of your marriage and concerned about preparing for a contentious divorce in Louisville? There are many reasons why specific issues or a divorce itself can become contentious. In some cases, there is simply an area where the former spouses cannot negotiate or mediate a resolution which satisfies both parties. In other cases an issue has arisen which is an emotional barrier to any negotiations. Roughly 10% of US adults have a personality disorder such as narcissism, bi-polar disorder or borderline personality disorder. These personality disorders often lead to challenging divorces.

When preparing for a contentious Louisville divorce the selection of your attorney will make a substantial difference in the outcomes within your case. This is why it is important to consider the divorce and family law attorneys at Dodd & Dodd. Our attorneys have decades in contentious divorce and family law disputes and work to protect our client’s interests and goals while diffusing or standing up to the bluster, argumentation and distractions presented by the opposing party. We focus on proven strategies which are designed to protect and achieve the things which are most important to our client.

There are a few things to keep in mind if you have a difficult spouse or are preparing for a contentious divorce in Louisville. For example, developing a strategy to minimize any contact at all and carefully manage all communications with your ex is a crucial step. Perhaps you only agree to communicate in writing and you do not ever respond to an angry or aggressive communication in the moment. Never discuss anything about your former spouse with family, friends, on social media and certainly not in front of your kids. Any statements you make, voicemails, texts, e-mails or posts can and will be used against you by your former spouse and their attorney.

Your attorneys can manage all communications with a former spouse and their legal representatives if need be. Together, we work to identify the things which are most important to you and consistently work to manage every aspect of each process such as child custody and parenting time, the division of Marital property and/or a business interest and issues of maintenance. You need an attorney who understands these complex cases and how to manage them. You need a proven trial attorney who not only provides sound advice and counsel and skilled legal representation but support and guidance to help you manage the journey.

We invite you to review the strong recommendations of our former clients and contact us or call 502-584-1108 to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced divorce and family law attorneys.
