Differences Between Uncontested and Contested Divorces

In general there are two different types of divorces that may occur when two spouses decide to end their marriage. If the divorce is amicable and the spouses are able to cooperate with each other regarding the terms of their divorce they may utilize mediation, collaborative divorce or other forms of uncontested divorce .

An uncontested divorce is agreed upon by both spouses and, in general, the terms of the divorce can be decided upon without serious court litigation. In the event that the spouses are unable to resolve their differences long enough to cooperate on the terms of the divorce, a contested divorce will result. When a contested divorce occurs the two spouses will have to refer to a judge to decide the many factors regarding their divorce including child custody , spousal support and property division .

If you are involved in a divorce or may soon be involved in a divorce the legal team at Hopper, Hopper & Mulligan, PLLC may be able to assist you in resolving your case by either fighting to protect your rights or working with your spouse to complete the terms of your divorce.

Thank goodness for Mr. Kevin Hopper!...
My ex wanted to cheat me out of alimony after being married and serving him for 27 years. Not so fast: Mr. Hopper took over, stayed completely calm and after 6 month my ex started to pay his dues. Thank you, Mr. Hopper!
