The term “uncontested divorce” is usually used to describe a divorce in which husband and wife agree on all of the terms.  A “contested divorce” describes a divorce where there is not full agreement on all the terms.

An uncontested divorce is simpler to complete and less expensive.  Even with an uncontested divorce, all the documents reflecting the agreement need to be done correctly.  If documents are done wrong, there can be serious problems later on in life.  The basic documents of an uncontested and contested divorce are the same.  Attorney fees for an uncontested divorce can be minimal if there is full agreement on all issues.

In contrast, a contested divorce requires a third party to resolve some of the disputed issues.  The third party can include mediation, arbitration, or a trial with a judge.  Arbitration and mediation are considered “alternative dispute resolution methods.
