    John has the experience and knowledge in all phases of family law, divorce, child custody, and juvenile delinquency. From the initial client interview, to the courtroom and appeals process, John knows what you are entitled to under the law and what the judges will generally award based on the facts of the particular case.  A “contested divorce” means that the parties agree to divorce but cannot agree on child custody, child support, division of property and visitation.  The process of a contested divorce begins with the filing of the “complaint.”  The courts require specific language (pleadings) that includes the parties, venue, facts relating to the marriage, children, property and reason for the divorce.  There has to be a “prayer for relief” that states what the parties are asking for.  The technical requirements are complicated and need the skills of an experienced lawyer.
