• Uncontested Divorce – In order to file an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must agree on everything. If you do not, then you will have to file for a contested divorce. The process in an uncontested divorce is relatively quick and easy. The couple lists their assets and submits a joint petition for divorce, listing the terms of their agreement. One of the benefits of filing an uncontested divorce is that one law firm can represent both parties, thus saving on attorney's fees.
• Contested Divorce – A contested divorce will take place whenever there is a dispute over any area of a divorce proceeding. It does not matter how small the dispute is; if the two parties do not agree on one term, the divorce is contested.
