What is a Contested Divorce?

A contested divorce is where you and your spouse cannot agree on how you will divide assets, debts, or custody of your children and the court will make the final decision on any issues that can’t be settled.

Even if parties are unable to reach an agreement at first, they can reach an agreement during litigation by way of mediation or arbitration.

Contested divorce cases may involve complicating circumstances such as:

  • Adultery
  • Physical or sexual abuse
  • Businesses that require valuation
  • Child custody issues
  • Significant assets
  • Mental Health issues
  • Alimony
  • Prenuptial or postnuptial agreements

A contested divorce may result in a trial where the court takes testimony and evidence is introduced in court so that the court can determine an appropriate resolution. The issues tend to turn on the specific facts and circumstances of individual situations. To present your best case, you need an expert family law attorney to guide and prepare you through the process.

What is an Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce is where you and your spouse have reached an agreement on all matters surrounding the end of your marriage before filing the necessary documents with the court. An uncontested divorce has many benefits. It saves money and time and gives you more control over your future.
