What Is the Difference between Contested and Uncontested Divorce Proceedings?


The couples who decide that they can no longer live together might want to obtain a divorce. There are two types of divorces: contested and uncontested.

Uncontested divorce refers to the proceeding where both parties wish to obtain divorce and there are no unresolved issues between them. The divorce proceedings are formality that gives the parties the final judgment terminating their marriage.

Contested divorce refers to the proceeding where either one of the parties objects to the divorce (claiming that the other spouse cannot obtain the divorce for some reason) or there are certain issues, such as child custody, child support, property distribution, that remain unresolved between the parties and the parties cannot agree on them without the judicial intervention.
