Uncontested Divorce vs. Contested Divorces

At The Law Office of Perkins & Janis, our divorce attorneys strive to help families dealing with divorce matters. Typically, there are two types of divorce cases- uncontested and contested. During an uncontested divorce, the spouses involved can usually agree on topics surrounding the divorce and do not require the court to intervene to help come to a conclusion on how assets are divided and how child custody is split. These divorces tend to go through the system quickly as they are less complicated, and in turn, less of a financial burden.

During a contested divorce, spouses have a difficult time agreeing on certain aspects that come with the divorce including child custody and support, the division of assets, and the allocation of debts. These cases tend to take more time as the courts need to get involved, helping each party reach an agreement, and keeping the interests of the children involved in mind.
