A contested divorce is where the parties disagree about one or more of the issues involved whether it be the grounds for divorce, spousal support, custody, visitation or a property issue. Often the contested issue is the grounds for the divorce itself whether it be adultery, desertion or cruelty but a contested case can also be on the no-fault ground because another issue such as custody is the contested issue.
An uncontested divorce is where the parties have no issues unresolved. Custody, support and a division of property have all been agreed upon. Quite often the parties at that point will sign a Property Settlement Agreement to be incorporated into the Final Decree of Divorce.
Uncontested divorces are generally filed on the one-year and six-month no-fault grounds depending on the circumstances. These divorces can be processed quickly. All issues must be resolved; the parties must have lived apart for the required period of time; and, the spouse is willing to cooperate.
