Many people come to our office asking, Is my divorce uncontested? But what does that mean?
An uncontested divorce occurs when both parties agree on every aspect and are willing to enter into written agreements, stating this. The parties must agree on everything – from dividing assets and debts to regularly scheduled parenting time. This may include agreeing to who gets the children on Christmas Eve annually. And further agreeing to questions like: Are you splitting the day or switching up even and odd years? If both of you agree on most aspects, but there are certain things neither is willing to budge on – the divorce will not be uncontested.
Our office handles both uncontested & contested divorces. Uncontested divorces are the most amicable & cost-effective way to get a divorce. Contested is more complex. Therefore, it is important to seek legal counsel to understand your rights when divorcing in Tennessee.
