Why Hire Our Firm

Types of Divorce: Contested vs. Uncontested

Contested divorces - which are known for being lengthy and costly - are when neither party can agree on how to divide their assets or on other divorce-related matters, such as alimony and timesharing / custody. These types of divorces tend to be heated and emotionally draining for everyone involved. For these reasons, divorce courts encourage couples to strive for uncontested divorces, where both parties can amicably agree on how to settle their divorce.

When divorcing, you have the option to file for one of the following:

  • Uncontested dissolution of marriage - This is for couples who can agree on issues such as child custody, alimony, and equitable distribution. It is generally much faster.
  • Regular dissolution of marriage - This is the traditional divorce route, which is often contentious when the divorcing couple cannot agree on the issues mentioned above.

Regardless of how difficult your divorce may seem, our Panama City divorce attorneys can help you communicate with your spouse's attorney and provide you with the reliable legal counsel you need.
