Going through a divorce can be one of the most challenging and emotionally draining experiences in a person's life. At such a difficult time, it's crucial to have the right information and support to navigate the legal process smoothly.
In Canada, there are two main types of divorce: contested and uncontested divorce. Each type has its own characteristics and requirements, but regardless of the path you choose our dedicated team is here to help you every step of the way.
CONTESTED and UNCONTESTED DIVORCE
In an uncontested divorce, both spouses mutually agree on all aspects of the divorce, including child custody and support, division of property and assets, and spousal support. They are able to reach an agreement through negotiation, mediation, or collaborative law processes. Since there is no disagreement, an uncontested divorce generally proceeds more smoothly, is less time-consuming, and tends to be less costly compared to a contested divorce.
Conversely, a contested divorce occurs when spouses are unable to agree on one or more issues related to the divorce. This can encompass various matters, such as child custody arrangements, division of property, financial support, or any other significant aspects of the divorce settlement. In a contested divorce, each spouse may hire separate lawyers to represent their interests and engage in a legal process that involves court hearings, document submissions, and potentially even a trial. The court will ultimately make decisions on disputed issues if the spouses are unable to reach an agreement.
