Uncontested vs. Contested Divorce

Throughout the divorce process, the possibility of disagreements arising between couples is likely to occur. When couples dispute over marital matters it is classified as contested divorce. Couples will strive to come to agreements outside of court through a mediator or divorce attorney; however, if matters cannot be settled, their case is disputed in court where a judge acts as a mediator. Uncontested divorce, on the other hand, is when couples agree on all matters concerning their marital assets and settle outside of court.

While uncontested divorce is ideal for many couples, the termination of marriage does not always go as smoothly. That is why you need an experienced and knowledgeable divorce attorney who can guide you along the divorce process in an organized and strategic way.
