Contested And Uncontested Divorce
By James Wood
A divorce case is contested if the parties cannot agree on every one of the issues involved in their particular
situation. Common areas of divorce disagreement include, but are not limited to: grounds for divorce, custody of
the children, visitation rights, division of the assets of the marriage, child support, maintenance (alimony),
payment of family debts, contribution toward educational expenses (college or parochial), payment of health
insurance for the dependent spouse, income tax structuring, etc
When a divorce case is filed, it is given an identification number and is deemed by the court to be a matter
that will ultimately require trial time in order to resolve all issues. Divorce cases are generally called for
trial in the order in which they were filed.
A divorce case remains a "Contested Divorce" until each and every item is resolved. If, however, at any time
during that period of the divorce case, the parties and their attorneys can reach an agreement on all of the
issues, they can then stipulate to the court to have the matters heard as an "Uncontested Divorce" (no fault
divorce) matter. When this occurs, the court will accommodate the parties to the marriage and provide an expedited
Hearing in which it will hear proof regarding the grounds of the divorce and the settlement of the divorce. If the
standards of the court and the law are met, the court will approve the settlement and enter a divorce Judgment on
that day or shortly thereafter.
Remember that, it is usually easier to marry than to divorce, especially if the spouses who wish to do so must
divide their common property as well.
