A divorce usually consists of several issues that need to be decided and agreed upon by both parties:
- Division and distribution of property and belongings
- Debt assumptions
- Care and custody of children
- Support of a child and/or spouse
An "uncontested" divorce generally means the divorce is resolved without going to court. The parties seeking the divorce, though they very likely disagree, have agreed on enough matters to settle the disputes outside of the courtroom.
A contested divorce is usually a complex divorce in which the parties cannot agree and are forced to go to court to seek mediation from an uninvolved 3rd party such as a judge or mediator. Attorneys play a critical role in representing the client's interests and helping them understand legal procedure.
Whether you are seeking a divorce that is contested or uncontested, you should be advised of your legal rights and you should have someone to represent you. We are standing by to help you at any time.
