Contested divorces are some of the most difficult to deal with because you and your spouse cannot agree on issues like child custody or how you'll divide your marital assets. As a result, you will have to wait longer for the divorce to be finalized.
Custody cases can get out of hand, and in some instances, children aren't allowed to see the parents who miss them very much. Recently in Texas, a father has brought to light a situation in which he has court-ordered custody times but is unable to see his daughter due to the mother's interference.
In an interesting move by the current presidential administration, religious adoption and foster-care providers have received protections. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently granted one faith-based agency in South Carolina a religious exemption, which could impact other agencies across the country.
