An uncontested divorce is one that is filed in the courts on the presumption
that both spouses agree with the terms. A divorce of this nature will
be swiftly executed and probably won’t involve any court hearings
to discuss the terms.
Unfortunately, not all uncontested divorces remain uncontested. Oftentimes,
spouses start with the intention to file an uncontested divorce, but end
up fighting over the details of the case and even disagreeing about many
of the terms regarding
child custody or
Spouses have the opportunity to contest elements of a divorce all the way
up until the final judgement. This means that you have the right to call
off the uncontested agreement and instead fight for your preferences in
a divorce case. It is important to note that if you should choose to call
off an uncontested divorce, it will make the divorce process longer. You
may have to spend more money on a lawyer and covering the court fees affiliated
with your case.
Many people opt for uncontested divorces because these are easier on the
children, and are almost always cheaper and faster than contested divorces.

need to seek assistance in your case.
