Uncontested Vs Contested Divorce
There is a common assumption that all divorces are the same, but there are many factors that can differentiate a divorce; for instance, there may be differences in the law, or in the way the couple approaches the divorce. Understanding the differences between the types of divorce can help make the proceedings as quick and painless as possible. Our divorce attorneys are able to sit down and explain the difference in the types of divorces and guide you through the process.
Divorces can be just as complex as they are emotionally charged.
Uncontested Divorce: This type of divorce is ideal, since there is no trial. You probably won’t have to appear in court at all. In this case, both spouses will work together to come to divorce terms that you both can agree on and file the necessary paperwork. If you and your spouse can come to terms that you both agree on, an uncontested divorce is the best option. It is one of the simplest types of divorce and will require less time to complete.
Contested Divorce: Couples who are unable to come to an agreement on property division or child custody can bring these issues to a judge to decide in a contested divorce.
Couples who go through this type of divorce will have to go through settlement negotiations and hearings to try and resolve their issues. If no agreement can be made, a trial in court will be necessary. Because of the complexity of a contested divorce and the legal proceedings it entails, hiring a divorce attorney is highly recommended.
