There are two forms of
divorce that people can be categorized under,
uncontested. Contested is considered to be the more difficult divorce that is more
likely to end in a court hearing in order to fight for property, custody
and the like. This category means that the divorcing couples are unable
to come to an agreement about their divorce, and ultimately are unwilling
to settle. An uncontested divorce means that the spouses, though wanting
to part ways, are willing to do so in a matter that is peaceful and both
parties are prepared to compromise where necessary.
A divorce itself is a trying process, though in the event that there are
children involved, the process can become more complicating. When there
are children involved the couples will have to work through details such
as child custody and child support. If the couple is unwilling to come
to a compromise, the court may then be left to decide what is in the best
interest of the children as opposed to giving one parent their way.
During an uncontested divorce, the couples will have the chance to work
through what they feel is best for their children and create a custody
arrangement accordingly. Here they will be able to decide a schedule that
is fitting for both themselves and the children and overall create a plan
for the custody that will allow the child to be well loved and taken care of.
While an uncontested divorce may be ideal for those couples that are in
the place of wanting to stay friends after the split, this may not always
be the case. If one spouse is abusive, or there are other extenuating
circumstances such as severe disabilities, or debt, etc. the options may
vary. In the event that you and your spouse are considering a divorce,
