What is the Difference Between Contested and Uncontested Divorce?

The difference between a contested and an uncontested divorce simply means that the parties have reached an agreement called a marital settlement agreement and have resolved all of the issues in their case. A contested divorce is a case where the parties do not have an agreement on every issue and are required to go before a judge for a trial where the court will determine the outcome of the issues.
