What Is the Difference Between Contested & Uncontested Divorce?
Contested divorce is the most common type of divorce. If you and your spouse
are unable to agree the decisions regarding the divorce, your case will
be considered contested. This will require you to go before a judge and
present evidence to support your claim. The judge will then issue a court
order regarding your divorce.
On the other hand, an uncontested divorce is when you and your spouse are
able to agree on all important aspects of the divorce. These include issues
regarding spousal maintenance, division of assets and property, and other
financial matters and disputes. You and your spouse will be able to sit
down and fill out a joint petition, judgment form, and affidavit in support
of the joint petition. Once the forms are filed in the correct circuit
court, you will appear in front of a judge, who will sign the settlement
and issue a final divorce order.
