Maitland Uncontested vs Contested Divorce Attorney

Trust Our Maitland Divorce Lawyer

Within the state of Florida there are three types of divorce: simple dissolution of marriage, contested dissolution of marriage and uncontested dissolution of marriage.

The procedure for an uncontested dissolution of marriage normally takes less time and is less expensive due to the parties having already agreed to all of the issues. A contested dissolution of marriage is more formal. The dissolution paperwork should be drafted by a qualified divorce attorney and must be served upon the opposing spouse by a process server or the sheriff’s office. The responding spouse then has a period of time to respond to the paperwork.

The Troum Law Firm, P.A. can assist with any type of divorce. We invite you to contact us for assistance today.

What Is Involved in a Dissolution of Marriage?

Whether a dissolution of marriage is contested or uncontested depends on the parties themselves. If husband and wife can agree on each and every issue concerning their dissolution of marriage then they can proceed uncontested. If the parties cannot agree on each and every issue then they must proceed with a contested dissolution of marriage.

Various issues must be either litigated or negotiated between the parties in a divorce proceeding. Each case must be reviewed independently and handled on an individual basis.

Issues such as the following may arise in any divorce and must be resolved either by the court or the parties:

  • Custody
  • Child support
  • Visitation
  • Health insurance
  • Equitable distribution
  • Alimony
  • Domestic violence

If the parties can agree on how each and every issue in their case is to be decided then they can proceed with an uncontested dissolution of marriage. If the husband and wife cannot agree on any particular issue or issues then the parties cannot proceed in an uncontested manner.
