Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce


In simple terms, a contested divorce is a divorce where the two sides are in disagreement as to how or even if their marriage should be dissolved.  Common areas of disagreement include child support, child custody, visitation, property division, debt division and tax issues, just to name a few.  If you and your spouse cannot reach agreement on each of these issues your divorce is contested and you will need to contact our office to schedule a consultation.


If you and your spouse are able to reach agreement on every issue involved in your divorce, then you have an uncontested divorce.  You may either contact our office to schedule a consultation or go to the uncontested divorce section of our website and complete the forms there. Our online forms offer you the convenience of beginning your divorce on your schedule, without waiting for an appointment with our office.  After completing the questionnaires our office can begin working on your case immediately.
