Resolving All Contested And Uncontested Divorces

Pennsylvania is a no-fault divorce state. This means that a spouse can initiate divorce proceedings without having to prove to the court that the other spouse is at fault for the end of the marriage. How amicable each spouse is to the divorce will largely determine whether you should pursue a contested or an uncontested divorce.

At the Nell Law Office, our attorneys have successfully resolved high-asset divorces, complex custody matters and other contentious and complicated family law issues. We take the time to help you understand your options and will always pursue outcomes that reflect your wishes.

How Are Contested And Uncontested Divorce Different?

When couples disagree on certain elements of the divorce, you must present your case before a judge. These contested divorces are often contentious and can take a long time to reach a final divorce settlement.

In other situations, you and your spouse may largely agree on custody issues, asset division and other important divorce matters. This can allow you and your spouse to proceed with an uncontested divorce. Uncontested divorces are quicker to resolve and help you and your spouse avoid a drawn-out fight in court.

Don't Assume Your Divorce Will Be Uncontested

Couples often assume that they are going to have an uncontested divorce. When working with our clients, that is often not the case as disagreements quickly surface between the two spouses.

We strive to always provide realistic expectations for our clients. Our lawyers will closely analyze the specific circumstances of your case to see what areas of agreement exist between you and your spouse. However, when we cannot settle matters amicably, we are always ready to go to court to advocate on your behalf.
