Contested VS Uncontested Divorce in California
There are two ways to resolve issues in a dissolution of marriage case in California. The dissolution case can be contested or uncontested. In an uncontested divorce you and your spouse agree to the terms of your divorce without the need for a family court trial. Uncontested divorce is generally cost-effective and time-saving in comparison to a contested divorce.
In a contested divorce, you and your spouse are unable to reach a settlement regarding matters such as:
When an acceptable agreement cannot be reached through negotiation or mediation, it becomes necessary to go to trial to protect your best interests. We will aggressively fight for the outcome you desire.
Divorce mediation is a way for spouses to resolve issues in a cooperative manner during a divorce. Sometimes the best results arise when two people decide to work together. Given the expense and uncertainty of a divorce, we always recommend that people try to resolve issues through pretrial divorce mediation.
It is best to have an experienced trial family law attorney represent you in the divorce mediation. When the other side is aware that a skilled, experienced divorce attorney is representing you, it can lead to a more favorable divorce mediation.
