The difference between an uncontested divorce and contested one has everything to do with the spouses’ willingness and ability to talk about the issues before them and reach agreement.
If you and your spouse aren’t talking, or if you believe your spouse intends to use the divorce process as a way to hurt you, rather than a way to close a chapter and move on, then your divorce is likely to be contested.
Contested divorces take longer, cost more, and are extremely draining for both spouses.
But in some cases, one or both parties are so committed to the cycle of hurting and retaliation that even the opportunity to simply end it and get on with things doesn’t stop it.
