Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce

In an uncontested divorce, both spouses agree to split their property a specific way, decide on custody issues, and work out spousal and/or child support before or simultaneous to filing the suit for divorce. If you and your spouse are separating amicably, it can save you time and money.

However, not all separations are simple. A contested divorce is one in which the spouses are in conflict on one or more issues. It may be best to settle these matters through the mediation process or in court. If you and your spouse are parting on poor terms or if you are both fighting for custody of your children, make sure you hire an experienced Longview divorce attorney.

Things to Consider during a Divorce

Regardless of whether a divorce is contested or uncontested, the process is still complex and emotionally taxing. There are a lot of decisions to be made, many of which can have a huge impact on you and your family’s well-being.

Some of the issues you will need to work through in your divorce are:

  • Property division: Texas is a community property state, which means that the community estate is divided in a fair, just, and equitable manner – or roughly 50/50, as we more commonly think of it.
  • Child custody: Texas courts decide custody based on what is best for the child. In most cases, they make an effort to give the child a healthy amount of time with both parents.
  • Spousal Maintenance: A spouse that cannot meet his or her basic needs because of a lack of marketable skills, a low education level, or a variety of other factors may be able to seek regular payments from the other spouse.
  • Child support: The courts will decide how each parent will contribute to the expenses related to any children from the marriage. These payments may last until the child turns 18 or graduates from high school, whichever occurs later.

Don’t be overwhelmed by the many complexities of a divorce. Let our Longview divorce lawyer guide you through the process and advise you on what will be in the best interest of your children. Serving all of East Texas, The Hollwarth Law Firm is the ideal resource for anyone at any stage of a divorce.
