What Is an Uncontested Divorce?
An uncontested divorce is a divorce where both parties agree on all the key issues surrounding the divorce. These typically include matters such as child custody, visitation, child support, spousal support, and property division. When a couple agrees on these matters, they may be able to file a joint petition for an uncontested divorce, which can significantly streamline the process.
Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce
Unlike an uncontested divorce, a contested divorce is where the parties cannot agree on one or more significant issues surrounding the divorce. In this case, they may need to go to trial, and a judge will decide. Contested divorces can be lengthy, costly, and emotionally draining.
