Uncontested Divorce vs. Divorce Litigation

Every couple who is seeking divorce has their own unique story; one that demonstrates how they have come to the decision to terminate their marriage. In each case, the couple will have to assess their circumstances to determine which route their case should pursue.

To determine whether your divorce will be contested or uncontested, you will need to understand what those terms mean and what effects each will have on your future of your family.

What is a contested divorce?

Contested divorces are for cases that are complicated and involve two spouses who cannot come to an agreement on the important matters involved in the divorce. Issues that can cause substantial debate are:

  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Alimony payments
  • Division of property
  • Allocation of debts

If one spouse seeks divorce while the other wants to remain married, the case will likely be contested.

Litigation in a Contested Divorce Case

Contested divorce cases often require litigation to resolve because the couple is unable to agree on the matters without court intervention. At the Law Office of Stephanie J. Squires & Associates, APLC, I am an experienced litigator who can provide you with the legal support that you need. You can trust in the strong litigation skills that I offer if your case brings you to court.

Pursuing an Uncontested Divorce

If you and your spouse can come to an agreement on the important decisions within your divorce, you can pursue an uncontested divorce. Cases that are uncontested are often less expensive and faster than those which must be handed over to the court. If you can work out the terms of your divorce with an experienced mediator before you go to court, you will likely avoid substantial disputes.

No divorce is ever easy, even if it is uncontested. Choosing a knowledgeable attorney to help you navigate the process will prove beneficial during mediation or uncontested divorce method.

I have an ability to successfully mediate cases with a couple that is pursuing an amicable resolution. Mediation services are available by the hour. For a flat rate fee, my firm can help you handle your divorce in a simplified manner. Contact my firm today to discuss the options available for your case.
