The Difference Between Contested Divorce and Uncontested Divorce

Your marriage is ending. You are ready for a divorce. You need to know your options. Part of that knowledge is realizing that there are two types of divorce: the contested divorce and the uncontested divorce. Which type you wish to file for depends entirely on how amenable each party involved is in the following circumstances.
  • Willingness to part If one spouse is unwilling, there may be grounds for contest. However, if both parties agree that it is best to go their separate ways, an uncontested divorce is possible.
  • Division of assets When spouses disagree on any facet, it opens the door for one party to contest. However, if parties can mutually agree on how to divide the assets, including the home, vehicles and personal property, they can apply for an uncontested divorce.

  • Custody of children How parents choose to divide custody and care of the children can be grounds for contest if two parents cannot come to an equitable division of parental duties. Parents who have a mutual understanding can avoid involving the courts in arrangements and file an uncontested divorce.
