Contested and uncontested divorces—negotiation, mediation, or litigation

In an uncontested divorce, a couple agrees on all divorce terms and conditions. In a contested divorce, there are disputes over particular issues, such as custody or property division. Many couples want to avoid courtroom battles for the sake of their children and resolve matters as amicably as possible outside of court. In such cases, we encourage the settlement of the divorce through negotiation or mediation.

In contrast, some divorce cases are destined for the courtroom based on extreme conflict that only a court ruling can resolve. William Nesmith is an experienced trial lawyer and can provide the support you need during litigation. Whatever legal method serves your purpose, he is committed to protecting your rights and striving for a favorable outcome.

Continued legal support

As circumstances change, we continue to provide family legal help if you need modification of custody, support, or visitation. If you are looking to expand your family through adoption, we can assist through private, agency, or international adoption.
