The Difference Between Uncontested And Contentious Divorce

Divorce cases can follow two general paths – uncontested or contentious. The path your case takes will depend on your ability to agree with your spouse on major divorce issues.

Uncontested Divorce

In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse can come to a full agreement regarding:

With no major areas of disagreement, an uncontested divorce allows you to avoid lengthy court battles and resolve your divorce more quickly and amicably by negotiating an out-of-court settlement agreement.

Contentious Divorce

A contentious divorce, on the other hand, occurs when spouses can’t agree on any of the previously listed issues. In a contentious divorce, a family court judge will intervene to rule on the disagreements. This is less desirable because the judge will not know your family as well as you do.

Attorney Acosta can guide you through the entire process and help you fight for positive results.

Mediation: An Alternative To Litigation

Even in divorce cases where there are areas of disagreement, mediation can provide a path forward without the need for costly and contentious litigation. Mediation is a voluntary process where you and your spouse meet with a neutral third-party mediator to work toward a mutually acceptable settlement.

Attorney Acosta can serve as a third-party mediator if you prefer this method of alternative dispute resolution.
