In this video, Lawrenceville Divorce Attorney David Ward answers, Are all divorces contested?


I'm Dave Ward 

No, but many are. An uncontested divorce is one in which the spouses agree on all terms of the divorce. They agree on every issue pertaining to their case, which may include:

Child custody and visitation
Child support
Division of property
Alimony (spousal support)

Even when a couple attempts an uncontested divorce, it can become a contested one if they are unable to come to terms on some of the more sensitive issues.

So whether you are attempting an uncontested divorce, know that your divorce will be contested, or you are already in the midst of a contested divorce, secure legal representation. It is important to get all of the details right to protect your future and avoid future problems that might arise if you fail to exercise all of your rights.

Why are contested divorces so difficult?

Aside from the many issues that arise in a divorce (child support, custody, alimony, property division, etc.), this can be a very complicated process because it requires following Georgia’s divorce laws and procedures.

Doing some pre-divorce planning can help you prepare for this process, but it is no replacement for legal representation. It can help you avoid surprises during the process. Counsel can also help you enforce or evaluate any prenuptial agreements that are present, and more. He can advise you on sensitive matters like dating during separation and how that might affect your divorce, as well as the legalities of spying on your spouse and whether you can use any of the evidence you gather.

Whether you expect your case to be contested or uncontested, it frequently helps to have an experienced attorney to assist.
