Will My Divorce Go to Court?
Every divorce is different, each with its own set of unique circumstances. If you and your spouse are on good terms and have already worked out an informal agreement on all outstanding property division and child issues, your divorce may resolve fairly quickly if the parties follow through on the informal agreement.
This is what’s known as an uncontested divorce where all terms and conditions of the divorce decree are agreed, and the final decree just needs to be written up. All other cases fall under the category of a contested divorce, meaning that no agreement has yet been reached, even though it may eventually settle by agreement.
Couples who cannot resolve issues like property division, child custody, spousal support, etc., will proceed with a contested divorce. Keep in mind that the vast majority of contested divorce cases settle by agreement as well, typically through mediation, which is a formal settlement conference.
Having an experienced divorce attorney represent you can help expedite the process so you can move on to the next chapter of your life. If you still cannot resolve any outstanding issues with legal counsel’s assistance, then your case will need to be decided by a family court judge or jury.
