Divorce – Uncontested or Contested?

Human nature dictates that most clients believe their divorce will be “uncontested” when they call our office.  One common misconception of an uncontested divorce is that if the married couple has a general idea about what each spouse wants from the divorce and/or that both spouses agree (and desire) a divorce, then the matter will be “uncontested.”  While this may ring true in the end, oftentimes the devil is in the details and eventually one side or both sides, once educated on their legal rights as a divorcing parent, change their respective positions on one or more major components of the divorce, and the matter is no longer “uncontested.”
