Contested vs. Uncontested Divorces
Uncontested divorces are, by far, the most common types of divorces in the U.S., making up about 90% of them. In this type of divorce, spouses are able to agree on their divorce terms and settle fairly quickly. However, sometimes spouses are unable to agree, leading to a contested divorce, which accounts for about 10% of divorces in America. However, despite what type of divorce a couple pursues, there will be certain similarities between the two.
Sometimes the decision to file for a contested or uncontested divorce is difficult, but an experienced attorney can help you evaluate your situation and grounds for divorce, helping to make this decision easier on you.

Issues Common to Both Types of Divorce
In any divorce, spouses will have to reach an agreement regarding many different issues, which can differ depending on a couple’s circumstances. Some of the common issues which couples going through both contested and uncontested divorces have to consider, though, include:
- Child support
- Child visitation / custody
- Alimony payments
- Property division
- Debt division
While making decisions regarding these issues is usually easier in an uncontested divorce, due to its nature, they are usually something that must be considered in either situation.
