Uncontested vs Contested Divorce
An uncontested divorce is when both parties come collectively and settle their differences before going to court. In contrast to a contested divorce, uncontested divorces are notably shorter and less expensive. Disagreements throughout a divorce considerably lengthen the litigation process and incur higher lawyer and court expenses.
A contested divorce occurs when both parties have one or more issues in their divorce that they are having difficulty settling such as infant custody, alimony, and division of assets. Contested divorces, on average, take 8 months to 12 months due to the often lengthy discovery process where both parties are required to disclose information about their divorce.
