Uncontested Divorce An uncontested divorce is one where you do not expect your spouse to disagree or object to any aspect of the divorce or when your spouse does not respond to the court papers served on him. The cost of an uncontested divorce can also be dramatically lower than in other cases as it avoids the cost and stress of litigation.
Contested Divorce A contested divorce is when your spouse disagrees with anything in the case, including the divorce itself, the property division, child custody, or financial support. A contested divorce is more complicated than an uncontested divorce as a judge will rule on every aspect of your divorce.
