There is often confusion about the difference between an uncontested divorce and a contested divorce. Generally speaking, an uncontested divorce is usually based upon irreconcilable differences and the parties have reached an overall consensus on how their estate should be separated and how to handle custody, visitation, child support, and alimony issues, if they are applicable.
Our firm is qualified to assist you in preparing a comprehensive settlement agreement. We can assist by streamlining the process and helping move it through the courts as efficiently as possible. In situations where the parties feel they may be able to resolve their differences without protracted litigation, we have involved mediators early in the divorce process so the couple can develop a comprehensive written agreement before either party files for divorce.
When one or more of the above factors cannot be agreed upon, it becomes a contested divorce. Donald Huskins has handled both contested and uncontested divorce cases for the past 30 years. Mr. Huskins is considered by many as one of the best divorce attorneys in middle Georgia and the state. Often involving litigation, contested divorce cases can and are usually very stressful and time consuming. Depending on our current case load we will accept contested divorce cases on a case by case basis.
