The Difference Between Contested and Uncontested Divorce

When considering divorce, there are multiple options available to you. With the help of the right Divorce Attorney, the benefits and limitations of each option can be explained to you and depending on your situation, there may be a clear path to take after an initial consultation. When thinking of a divorce, you may draw on the stereotypical litigation with heated emotions and a high level of hostility.

However, this is not always the case. An uncontested divorce is when the partners can amicably decide to separate and agree on the vast majority of asset division and other important decisions like those involving children or possible alimony.

While not every issue needs to be decided on before coming to an attorney and filing for divorce, specific pre-requisites need to be met. If the remainder of the points of contention can be solved outside of the courtroom and through a form of mediation, it would be considered an uncontested divorce. Not only will this save everyone involved time, but due to the lack of litigation or extensive need for your attorney’s services, it will also save money. As well as conserving resources, this method of divorce also often saves a great deal of emotional stress for both parties and anyone else involved.

At the Law Offices of David Bliven, our expert team can help you determine which path is right for you, and regardless of what you choose, we can be by your side every step of the way. The first step you need to take if you are considering divorce or if it is already on the table is to meet with a divorce attorney who will advocate for you and ensure a favorable resolution.
