Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce in Connecticut
All divorces can be assigned to either one of two categories: contested or uncontested. In a contested divorce, the spouses are unable to agree on one or more of the major issues involved in the dissolution of the marriage. Whether it is a dispute over child custody, a fight over the payment of alimony, or a disagreement concerning the division of shared property, the family law judge is called upon to rule on the matter. Contested divorces are essentially courtroom trials, and they involve extensive adversarial litigation in the effort to win the case. In an uncontested divorce, on the other hand, you and your spouse work together to negotiate a settlement out of court.
The fact that your divorce is uncontested does not mean that you agree on everything at the outset, but it does mean that you are both determined to pursue an amicable resolution to the case. When you work with the divorce lawyers at the Bauer Law Group, LLC, you will have a legal team that is ready to take on the challenges involved in your case and to fight to defend your personal interests. Whenever possible, we try to help our clients achieve an uncontested divorce. If the other side refuses to approach the case fairly, however, we will not hesitate to take the matter to court. We approach our clients' cases as if they were our own and are ready to take immediate action on your behalf.
