Uncontested Divorce


A divorce is considered uncontested when you and your soon-to-be ex can agree on ALL of the Terms.  This means you have decided how all of your assets, debt and any children involved in the marriage will be shared.  If you cannot agree on all of the terms to your divorce then your divorce is considered contested.  If you wish to file for an uncontested divorce, it is helpful for you to sit down with your spouse to discuss the terms of your divorce.  The main issues to be decided are property division, how to deal with your debt, child support, custody of your children and potential alimony claims.

Contested Divorce


When you and your spouse are unable to agree on ALL of the terms related to the end of your marriage, you will have to proceed on a contested basis.  Contested divorces can be expensive as they are much more time consuming.  Often times, multiple court appearances are needed to settle outstanding issues.  Most often contested divorces settle and end up converting to an uncontested divorce.
