What’s the difference between a contested and uncontested divorce?
A contested divorce happens when a couple cannot agree on the terms of the divorce, such as property division, child custody, child support, alimony, and debt allocation. These divorces usually go to court and can be lengthy struggles as each party fights for the terms they want. An uncontested divorce is one in which the couple has come to a general agreement on the terms of their divorce and agree upon their divorce settlement together with their attorneys. For both contested and uncontested divorce, it is advisable to have an experienced lawyer present to protect your interests.
