What Makes a Divorce "Contested"

Contested divorces are the most complicated types of divorce because the spouses are unable to reach an agreement over one more many issues about the divorce.

With an "uncontested" divorce the spouses are able to agree on all issues concerning their divorce, including property and debt division, child custody, child support, and spousal support. In contrast, a "contested" divorce is one where the spouses cannot agree on such issues and end up in court, asking a judge to decide on these issues for them.
