Distinguishing Uncontested vs. Contested Divorce

In seeking a divorce, you may have heard the terms “uncontested” and “contested” divorce. There are many differences between these two types of divorce. We believe it is very important for parties seeking a divorce to be well-informed of their options, including understanding the pros and cons of each.

At the Law Offices, we can explain possible divorce options to you as well as cost-effective and affordable ones. We want you to be fully-aware of all your options and will help you determine what is the best option for your particular case. Every divorce is different, and we provide individualized and catered attention to each of our divorce clients.

Uncontested Divorce – Affordable – Cost-Effective – Efficient
In an uncontested divorce, parties decide what they want on all relevant divorce issues, including:

  • Property division/asset division
  • Child support
  • Spousal support/alimony
  • Child custody and visitation

By agreeing to negotiate and cooperate, parties are able to save both time and money through a low-fixed fee. Instead of a judge, the parties come to an agreement using an attorney through a mediation process. In addition to reducing anxiety, parties become very knowledgeable as to their rights and the laws through several meetings with their attorney. An experienced attorney can facilitate an uncontested divorce fairly quickly, usually within two to six months. Another benefit of uncontested divorce is that it often lessens the impact on any children involved. Our attorneys provide exceptional collaborative divorce services and can discuss how this would work for you.

Contested Divorce

A contested divorce is more traditionally known. Parties use a third-party judge to make decisions on all divorce issues. There is very little room for parties to help create their own divorce order and it is essentially all up to the judge. Contested divorce cases are usually longer and can sometimes take years to get through the court system to reach a judgment. Oftentimes there is more anxiety during a contested divorce process since parties are not as sure as to the final outcome. Both parties incur more expenses in legal fees. However, if litigation is what turns out to be your divorce option, our attorneys are aggressive and effective in the courtroom.
