Issues regarding minor children are often hotly contested. However, obtaining an uncontested divorce with minor children is possible and often works out better for all parties involved. An uncontested divorce is less of a drain on the family’s financial resources and takes less time than a contested divorce. Also, if parents can agree on the issues regarding their children, there will likely be less hostility between the parents and the interests of the children are better served.

Uncontested Divorce Without Minor Children An uncontested divorce in Georgia is a divorce in which there are no remaining issues to be decided by a court. This means that the parties have reached a settlement agreement resolving all of the issues of their marriage. Issues of a marriage without minor children can include things like joint marital property, joint marital debt and alimony. An uncontested divorce is a desirable option to many because it is less costly, less time consuming and allows the parties to more easily move on with their lives. If done properly, it is possible to finalize an uncontested divorce as soon as thirty-one days after service of the complaint. Contact one of our divorce lawyers at Kan & Clark, LLP to get started.
Contested Divorce A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot come to an agreement resolving all of the issues of their marriage. If there is any issue upon which the parties cannot agree, the divorce is considered contested. Contested, in this sense, does not mean that one party does not want a divorce—under Georgia divorce law, it is of no consequence whether a party in a divorce action wants a divorce. Contested simply means there is a dispute over how the issues of the marriage should be resolved. If you are facing or anticipate a divorce, contact us at Kan & Clark, LLP. We will fight hard to protect your interests.
