Everyone going through a divorce hopes it will be uncontested. Uncontested divorces are cheaper and less stressful. But sometimes, an uncontested divorce, for various reasons, is simply not possible. In that event, you must ask your divorce attorney to prepare contested divorce documents, get your spouse served, and take him to court.
A divorce becomes contested when the two parties cannot agree to all the terms of the divorce. Often, each party will retain his or her own attorney and prepare to go to court. However, just because the divorce begins as a contested divorce, ultimately, in many cases, the parties, through their divorce lawyers, are able to negotiate a settlement and avoid further litigation. In addition, in some divorces, a satisfactory settlement may be achieved through mediation. But if the case cannot be settled, then it will be necessary to prepare for a final divorce hearing, usually before the Superior Court judge assigned to the divorce case.
