Contested: A contested divorce is one in which the parties do not agree on all issues related to the divorce. In these cases, litigation is required and a judge will ultimately determine the outcome of the contested issues.
Uncontested: An uncontested divorce is one in which the parties have resolved all matters related to their divorce, including child custody, visitation, child support, spousal support, and the division of property, assets, and debt. When parties agree on these issues, you and your spouse can execute a separation agreement, which is a binding contract later incorporated into your Final Decree of Divorce.
