Uncontested vs. Contested

Uncontested & Contested Divorce in Arizona

What Is an Uncontested Versus a Contested Divorce?

There are two main types of divorce – contested and uncontested. Contested divorces occur when the two spouses are not able to agree either on getting a divorce or on the terms of the divorce, making it necessary for a family law court to make a decision. An uncontested divorce does not require the court to intervene, as the spouses agree to all terms. Typically, contested divorces will require a significantly greater amount of time, effort, and money to resolve.

Uncontested & contested divorce agreements are both based on three issues:

  • Property and asset division
  • Child custody
  • Child and spousal support
