Once you have come to the decision to legally dissolve your marriage, there
are numerous different issues you will have to think through before filing
for a divorce. It is important to be aware of the differences between
an uncontested divorce and a contested divorce so that you can be prepared
for any eventuality. In most cases, the couple will be able to file for
an uncontested divorce. With 95% of divorce cases able to be resolved
in this way, it is by far the more common route. It is only when there
are key issues that the couple cannot come to a resolution on that the
case may have to go into litigation.
uncontested divorce is more beneficial than contested divorce. For example, it is much more
cost-effective and can be resolved in a much shorter amount of time. It
is also less emotionally stressful on everyone involved. The couple works
together with a legal representative or mediator to resolve the key aspects
of their case.
Child custody, property division,
spousal maintenance, and more, are important issues that will need to be worked through before
the divorce can be finalized.
When it comes to issues like child custody and property division, however,
it can be difficult for the couple to see-to-eye. Despite their best efforts,
the couple may not be able to compromise and negotiate these issues. In
these cases, the
contested divorce may have to go before a judge. Our team is able to handle both uncontested
and contested divorce cases, so you will be able to have peace of mind
knowing that a competent legal advocate is by your side every step of
