What Does Uncontested Divorce Mean?
In short, uncontested divorce is exactly what it says – a couple individually agrees on all terms of the divorce without contention or further negotiation. This applies to all matters within the proceedings – from equitable distribution of assets to child custody and visitation rights. If both parties are satisfied with the agreement, the divorce may move ahead uncontested and can be completed entirely outside of the court room. A family law attorney will be able to finalize the judgment of divorce through the courts without the couple needing to appear.
Obviously, uncontested divorce is the most economical way for a couple to resolve the issues at hand. In some instances, and depending on the complexity of the estate involved, this can be achieved quickly through mediation or outside negotiation in sixty days or less. The Law Offices of Paul A. Boronow, PC have helped many couples in this fashion and are prepared to help you find a mutual ground in which to settle your case.
How Does Contested Divorce Work?
On the other hand, a separation that culminates in bitter disputes and general discord over the key values will move forward as a contested divorce. Traditionally, antagonism surrounds certain key issues such as:
- Child custody
- Child Support
- Marital Residence
- Distribution of assets of debts
While couples can work to resolve their differences at any time during a contested divorce, should they be unable to finalize an agreement, a court will be needed to make a final determination. Traditionally, courts are necessary in one form or another to settle even the smallest of arguments within any divorce action – but it is far from the most cost effective.
