Providing the Compassionate Guidance You Need
It is no secret that divorce is a challenging process to endure, especially when children are involved. Every key issue, such as child custody, child support, and property division, can easily become a point of severe contention and anger. To field your way through this emotionally taxing process, it is crucial to hire an experienced attorney to guide you through each step. At Peterson White in Knoxville, our experienced family law team is committed to providing compassionate and knowledgeable legal representation for every client we serve.
Contested and Uncontested Divorce
There are two main types of divorce – contested and uncontested. When a divorce is uncontested, it essentially means both parties are on the same page regarding every factor involved in their divorce. It also means that both spouses agree to get a divorce.
Below are the issues you must agree on to have an uncontested divorce:
If you and your spouse agree on all of these issues, you can proceed with an uncontested divorce, which generally takes less time and incur fewer legal fees. Generally, uncontested divorce is more common among those with less complex cases.
When a divorce is contested, it may mean one spouse does not wish to get a divorce or that the spouses agree to get a divorce, but disagree on one or more of the aforementioned issues. In Tennessee, mediation is required. Therefore, you and your spouse must first attempt to negotiate a settlement regarding these issues and, if you are unsuccessful, you may go through divorce litigation, where a judge will render a decision for each of the remaining issues.
At Peterson White, we are experienced in handling both contested and uncontested divorce. No matter how complex your divorce is, you can rely on our team to provide the exceptional legal guidance our law firm is known for.
