What Is A Contested Divorce?
In an uncontested divorce, spouses come together in an attempt to civilly negotiate the terms of their separation out of court. This is not always possible, however, as hot-button issues such as child custody, debt distribution and high net worth asset division can cause tensions to flare and make it difficult for divorcing spouses to see eye to eye. Divorces that require litigation are known as contested divorces. While an uncontested separation can be completed relatively quickly, a contested divorce can take several months if not years to complete.
Divorces often become contested over the following issues:
- Custody arrangements
- Spousal support/alimony
- Asset division, including high-asset division
- Debt distribution
- Visitation rights
- Parental relocation
Once both sides have had a chance to present their arguments, a judge will issue a final decision that is enforceable by law. Either spouse can seek a modification to this order after a certain amount of time has passed or in the event of a considerable change in circumstances from the time the order was first issued.
