The Divorce Decision
The decision to file for divorce is one that should be made with great care. If you have found your way here it is likely that you have already decided that divorce is your only course of action. If this is the case, the next question that arises is what is the best way to go about it. The best way to go about is dependent on the current state of your relationship with your spouse. If the state of the relationship is amicable, then you may be able to file an Uncontested Divorce. If the state of the relationship is uncivil, a Contested divorce is the only possibility.
Procedurally speaking there are two(2) tpes of Divorces. Your case could be an Uncontested Divorce or a Contested Divorce.
An Uncontested divorce is where the parties agree that a divorce should take place and the terms of the divorce have been discussed in enough detail to allow an agreement to be drafted that resolves all of the issues of the marriage. This means that the parties have come to an agreement on maintenance (formerly called alimony), and the division of marital assets and marrital debts, in a manner that is mutually satisfactory to both parties. If there were children born of the marriage, it also means that the parties have reached an agreement on custody, visitation and child support.
A Contested Divorce is where the parties do not agree on the terms, or one party does not want a divorce, and it is necessary to seek court intervention to obtain the divorce. This is often the case when a divorce is sought because of domestic violence, or because one party is too difficult to deal with in the context of an Uncontested Divorce.
