What You Need to Know About Contested Divorce

A contested divorce occurs when you and your spouse disagree on any aspect of the divorce. Once you serve your spouse with a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, he or she has 20 days to respond. Failure to respond will allow you to proceed with the divorce and obtain a Default Dissolution of Marriage.

However, if your spouse disagrees with the divorce, you may be able to seek a resolution through conciliation meetings. If no agreement can be made through conciliation, you will need to request a trial, where you and your spouse will present evidence to support your arguments.

A contested divorce may involve disagreements on various factors, such as:

  • Child support and custody arrangements
  • Division of assets and property
  • Spousal maintenance
  • Responsibility for debts
  • Responsibility for attorney fees and other expenses

If you and your spouse are not able to reach an agreement, you will have to proceed through formal litigation. You will need to set a trial date and gather evidence to build your case. Evidence may include witness testimonies, financial statements, and other documentation. While an uncontested divorce may be concluded after the mandatory 60-day waiting period, a contested divorce could take 6-9 months or longer to resolve.
