What Is "High Conflict" Divorce?
In modern divorce, couples usually have the opportunity to come to an agreement on the terms of their divorce, whether it be custody and parenting time, division of property, and so on. These proposed agreements can then be submitted to the court, approved, and ratified into the divorce decree.
However, not all couples can agree on these terms and, when they can't negotiate with one another, it is up to the court to assess the circumstances of each party and decide a reasonable post-marriage arrangement for them. These are considered "high conflict divorce" cases because it is alleged that one spouse is trying to edge some kind of unreasonable advantage over the other and they reach an impasse that only the judge can resolve.
High conflict divorces often involve:
- Child custody issues
- Domestic abuse accusations
- High net worth
- Shared business assets
- Accusations of hidden assets
