Buffalo Divorce Attorney Explains Contested and an Uncontested Divorce
As an experienced Buffalo Divorce Attorney, clients often ask me about contested and uncontested divorce. When people contact my office they sometimes call and ask specifically for an uncontested divorce. When they do, I ask them, “Does that mean that you have resolved all the issues with regard to your marital situation? Have you’ve decided who’s going to be the custodial parent, what the access arrangements are going to be, and what the child support, medical coverage is going to be?”
If so, the divorce is uncontested because all those terms have already been agreed upon. However, if the terms have not been agreed upon, then the action is contested and there are issues that need to be resolved.
Just because this would be considered a contested divorce doesn’t mean that a skilled Buffalo Divorce Attorney won’t be able resolve the issues. It doesn’t mean that we have to go to court, and have the court decide for you what’s going to happen with regard to your assets. A contested divorce simply means the terms to the divorce need to be worked on.
