Contested vs Uncontested Divorce

When a divorcing couple agrees on all terms of the divorce it becomes uncontested. These terms may include issues such as child custody, visitation, and spousal support. These cases generally do not require a court hearing, are quick, and cost-effective.

If the divorcing couple does not agree on every term, then a contested divorce may be filed. Like its counterpart, issues that may be disagreed upon include custody, alimony, etc. While a contested divorce may take longer, it has the valuable purpose of protecting the rights and assets of those involved. Contested divorces are more utilized with couples who have large financial properties or are experiencing complex family matters.

The Skills and Resources Needed to Win

All of our family law attorneys have extensive trial experience and the advocacy skills needed to protect your rights and interests. Two of them are former prosecutors who currently practice criminal defense alongside family law. One is a former county prosecutor who prosecuted individuals charged with domestic and child abuse. This experience — from both sides of the table — can make the difference in a contested divorce case.

In your case, our firm will prepare a thoroughly researched case designed to protect your rights and achieve your goals. When needed, we will supplement these efforts with those of specialists in appropriate disciplines such as a child psychologist, business valuation specialist, forensic accountant, private investigator or other professionals.
