Contested Divorce Explained
Posted on Mar 10, 2011 11:05am PST
Are you considering a divorce? If so, a
Jacksonville family law attorney can explain certain technical terms like "
contested divorce" to you.
This is when both parties cannot agree to all of the issues as they are
related to the divorce. Although everyone's situation is different
these areas of contention often involved custody of children,
visitation rights, grounds for divorce, division of assets of the marriage, payment
of family debts, health insurance for the dependant spouse and income
When a divorce case is officially filed it is given an identification number
and is considered a case that will eventually wind up in court. All divorces
remain contested until everything has been settled completely. However,
if both parties are able to come to an agreement before their court date
then the case can be filed as uncontested and pushed forward. An expedited
hearing can be called for so that a judge can sign off on the divorce papers.
