What Is the Difference Between a Contested and an Uncontested Divorce?
In Georgia, divorces, modifications, and other court petitions are classified as either “contested” or “uncontested”. An uncontested petition means that the parties agree on all aspects of the divorce and the court doesn’t need to intervene on any issues. A contested petition, on the other hand, includes at least one disputed factor. In many cases, contested divorces contain several areas of disagreement.
