Here are some of the questions you may have:
What is a contested divorce?
A contested divorce, as opposed to an uncontested divorce, is when a couple cannot agree on the terms of their divorce. Perhaps unsurprisingly, more divorces than not, are contested. When a couple is in a contested divorce, in most cases, their divorce will enter litigation, wherein a judge will determine the outcome of their divorce, as well as their divorce terms, such as their child custody agreement, their alimony agreement, their child support agreement, and various issues concerning property division.
Are there other divorce options?
Fortunately, there are. If you are looking to resolve your divorce outside of the courtroom setting, you may hire a divorce mediator. A mediator is an unbiased third party hired by you and your spouse who will listen to both of your concerns in a mediation session, and from there, he will work to facilitate a conversation between you and your spouse to hopefully reach a compromise. This often leaves both parties feeling as though their voices have been heard, thereby making the outcome of their divorce easier to accept.
