What Is a Contested Divorce?

When many people imagine a divorce proceeding, heated arguments and similar scenarios tend to play out in their minds. This is a possibility for a contested divorce, but it is not a necessity. In legal terms, a contested divorce is any divorce that involves one or more aspects or factors that both spouses cannot agree upon with just the help of an attorney or mediator. An unresolved or contested issue will eventually move the case to litigation and court, where a judge will make the final decision.

Important considerations in divorce that may lead to a contest include:

Benefits of Contested Divorces

There is a common misconception that an uncontested divorce is always the better option over a contested divorce. It is true that an uncontested divorce will likely resolve faster and can save you money by settling outside of court, but contested divorce is a better option in certain situations.

A contested divorce will force you to look closely at the most important aspects of your divorce and family life. Through this inspection and reevaluation – which should be carried out with the help of an attorney – you can be certain for what you are fighting. If your divorce is uncontested only for the sake of avoiding an argument, you could be giving up too much without realizing it right away.
