A Brief Look at Contested and Uncontested Divorce
In Florida, any couple pursuing a divorce must file a matrimonial dissolution. They will have the option of signing a marital settlement deal if they can concur on one or more of the major points, outlining how all the main divorce disputes have been addressed. A parenting plan may also be developed where children are involved, detailing the rights and duties of both parents, including child care, making decisions for the child, and more.
Miami, FL -- (SBWire) -- 11/06/2020 --However, soon to be exes may have differing opinions on some of the larger issues associated with their divorce. For couples intending to file for divorce, it may help to make an informed decision on the best way to proceed by considering the discrepancies in a divorce that is contested or uncontested.
In a contested divorce, a couple cannot agree on the main facets of a divorce, which may include the division of land, spousal compensation, marital responsibilities, time-sharing, and child care.
As a result, the court will require a couple to mediate in order to settle such conflicts, and if they do not find an agreement, a family court judge will possibly be charged with finalizing all unresolved legal issues.
As implied, a couple can settle their problems through an uncontested divorce without the intervention of a judge. A marriage mediation agreement and a parental proposal is presented by the pair to a judge, who approves the arrangement and bestows final consent.
