Every divorce is different. A contested divorce occurs if you and your spouse are unable to agree on certain issues such as child custody, child support, spousal support, and division of property and assets. As a result, the litigation process may take longer and will require the court to rule on the issues that you were unable to resolve with your spouse. At a final hearing, the judge hears evidence from you and your spouse and makes a decision. A divorce lawyer can help you work through the process of a contested divorce.
An uncontested divorce is less expensive and less time consuming than a contested divorce. If you and your spouse are civil towards one another, this may be the option for you. In an uncontested divorce, a couple can easily resolve their issues including, but not limited to, child custody, spousal support, and the division of marital assets which are incorporated into a written agreement without the need for court intervention.
