Contested & Uncontested Divorces

An uncontested divorce is one in which both spouses agree to both the divorce and all issues related to it – including child custody and alimony. Uncontested divorces are preferable to both spouses as well as children, since it is far less expensive and takes less time than contested divorces. Uncontested divorces require a short court hearing.

A contested divorce is one in which both spouses cannot come to an agreement on all the issues relating to the divorce, or in which one spouse does not want to go through with the divorce. Common issues that spouses cannot agree on include child support and alimony, as well as property division. If these issues cannot be resolved and remain contested, the divorce will proceed to court.
