What Is the Difference between a “Contested Divorce” and “Uncontested Divorce”?

Family Law

Many decisions must be made throughout a divorce case. Details pertaining to child support, property division and child custody are just some of these decisions. If two spouses can agree upon resolution of these issues, it is deemed an “uncontested divorce”. In the case of an uncontested divorce, litigation is not necessary. If spouses are unable to come to an agreement about resolution of issues, it is called a “contested divorce”.
