Elements of a Contested Divorce

Before a couple can end their marriage or partnership, one of the spouses must be able to demonstrate that the marriage is irretrievably broken, or that the other party suffers from mental incapacity. When one of these has been met, along with basic residency requirements, the spouse may file for divorce. The other party can then respond to their proposed terms of separation.

Because many cases of divorce stem from a couple's differences, it is often impossible to reach a satisfactory agreement leading to an uncontested divorce. If there are unresolved issues of any kind, the dissolution will be considered contested, and will have to be resolved in a court hearing.

A number of factors may contribute to the contested status of a divorce:

You may still have questions about the future of your children or your job, or even the possibility of parental relocation. You don't have to face these issues alone.
