Types of Divorce
There are two main types of divorce: contested divorce and uncontested divorce:
- A contested divorce means that the spouses do not agree on one or more issues to reach a final settlement, which can lead to trial litigation where a judge decides the outcome of the divorce.
- On the other hand, when both spouses agree on all terms of the divorce, this is known as an uncontested divorce, which is often faster and less costly compared to a contested divorce.
