When a couple takes that trip down the aisle, they fully expect to continue the journey together, but sadly, life can be a rocky path and some couples find themselves heading in new directions.
Divorce is never an easy decision and the process is rarely without some degree of contention, but what if one spouse isn’t ready to sign the papers, either out of hope of reconciliation, fear of losing or sharing custody of children, or simply to make the process as difficult as possible for the other spouse?
No two divorces are the same and some are much more complex to navigate than others, depending on the amount of property to divide, whether or not there are children, and whether both parties can agree to an out-of-court settlement.
Divorce is always stressful and often contentious. But understanding the differences between an uncontested divorce and a contested one can save divorcing couples a great deal of anxiety, time, and money.
