Contested Divorce
Overview

If your partner is not willing to give a divorce, you need to file a divorce petition in Court. MyAdvo will help you obtain divorce from your partner through an expert divorce lawyer.

Before initiating divorce proceedings, sending a legal notice to your partner serves as a final warning. In case the partner is agreeable to divorce, both of you can then file a joint petition for mutual divorce. However, if the divorce is not agreeable, you should then file the divorce petition individually. To send a legal notice, please click here.
