Divorce can be a difficult or traumatic experience, particularly if the divorce becomes contested and the parties cannot agree. Any divorce, contested or uncontested, can leave people emotionally, physically, and financially exhausted. Having an experienced family law attorney is critical to minimizing the stress the divorce process places on individuals and their loved ones.
A divorce becomes contested when the spouses are unable to agree to the terms of the divorce and the Court must step-in and resolve the problems. Some common issues in a contested divorce may include:
- Fault of the Parties
- Temporary Support (if any)
- Property Division
- Residential Placement of Children (if any)
- Primary Residential Placement
- Parenting Time
- Child Support
- Insurance, etc.
We have found that often times a lot of the issues between the spouses can be worked out if discussed between the parties. An uncontested divorce is when both parties are in agreement and simply need an attorney to draw up all the divorce documents. This is the most affordable way of obtain a divorce.
