Ordinarily, within even the most amicable of divorces lie disagreements.
A divorce is considered "uncontested" ONLY when the parties agree on every issue in the divorce. This means that there are no disagreements as to asset valuation, property division , spousal maintenance, child support, child custody, visitation rights or any other issue that arises during a divorce. On the other hand, a contested divorce entails that there is at least one issue in the divorce on which the parties disagree. Contested divorces tend to require more time to iron out the disagreements, and could result in a trial, although it is possible to resolve issues through mediation in order to avoid going to court. The attorneys at Tekell & Tekell, L.L.P., are ready to counsel you through each step of a divorce , whether uncontested or contested, to ensure your interests are represented and protected in each agreement obtained.
