Irvine & Riverside Attorneys for Contested Divorces

*** Fernandez & Lauby LLP no longer accepts new Family Law clients. Please feel free to contact us, if you would like us to refer you to an attorney that may be able to assist you. Thank you. ***

California is a no-fault divorce state. That means that either spouse can file and pursue a divorce, with or without the consent of the other spouse. It seems simple enough, until the filing party realizes that the other spouse can throw up significant roadblocks to contest a fair settlement or final judgment.

Contested Divorce Lawyers in Irvine & Riverside

At Fernandez & Lauby LLP, our contested divorce attorneys are experienced litigation and trial lawyers. We work as a team to ensure our clients that we will stay focused on protecting your rights and interests, no matter how strongly your spouse or opposing lawyer fights for an unreasonable solution; Call us at 888.959.8508 or email us today.

Types of Contested Divorce Cases

Generally, Southern California family law judges will expect the parties to do everything possible to resolve contested issues in mediation or by using other methods of alternative dispute resolution. But the courts also recognize that some parties may not be willing to accept any solution, short of a jury trial. Our team of California contested divorce attorneys includes knowledgeable negotiators and mediators, but we also bring the power and experience of some of the region's most experienced and skillful trial lawyers to your case.

Many contested divorce cases involve hidden assets and debts. We work with independent accounting and property valuation experts to make sure your financial interests are protected and the financial facts are laid on the table.

We have experience in contested divorce and legal separation cases involving:

  • Family business valuations
  • Contested child custody matters
  • Military divorce
  • Dividing complex assets and family debt
  • Divorces involving a contested prenuptial agreement
  • Pensions, 401(k)s, retirement accounts and stock options
