Divorce can be a stressful experience. You need an attorney who can explain what to expect and inform you of the next steps to take that will help your case.
Divorce can either be agreed upon (uncontested) or not agreed upon (contested). In order for a divorce to be uncontested, ALL aspects must be agreed upon including the parenting plan/schedule if minor children are involved and distribution of assets and debts. An uncontested divorce is more cost effective and will get you a quicker resolution.
A contested divorce is initiated by one party and served upon the other party. Once a Complaint for Divorce is served upon the opposing party, either party can motion the court for temporary relief. Contested divorce can be a lengthy process and there are certain rules which must be followed. You need an experienced attorney who can help you avoid the pitfalls of a contested divorce.
