Uncontested vs Contested Divorce Cases
In a Contested Divorce, the spouses disagree on one or more issues, such as child custody, division of property, or spousal support. The parties may try to resolve these issues through negotiation, mediation, or collaborative law, but if they are unable to reach an agreement, the case will go to trial and a judge will make a decision on these issues.
In an Uncontested Divorce, the spouses agree on all of the issues and can complete the divorce process without going to court. An uncontested divorce is often quicker, cheaper, and less stressful than a contested divorce.
It’s important to note that even in an uncontested divorce, the parties may still need to go through the legal process and follow certain procedures to get the divorce finalized. In some cases, an uncontested divorce may still require the assistance of a lawyer to ensure that all of the necessary paperwork is completed and filed correctly.
