Uncontested Divorce Vs. Contested Divorce

Many people begin the divorce process with the hope that conflicts can be resolved amicably and quickly. While a truly “uncontested divorce” is possible and few cases ultimately go all the way through trial, the vast majority of divorces are contested to some degree and require negotiation or mediation. Having a family law and divorce attorney you can talk to openly and trust is essential to avoiding unjust outcomes and long-term regret.
