Uncontested Divorce and Simple Divorce

A simple divorce is also known as an uncontested divorce, which is when you and your ex agree to divorce.

Don’t want to spend an eternity fighting a divorce case in court? You should file for an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce is the best course of action for you if you and your husband have reached an understanding regarding child custody and asset split. You can save time and money by getting a divorce without a fight by avoiding drawn-out legal battles.

This is different from a contested divorce, which is when you and your ex do not agree on all the issues raised by the divorce. This could include disagreements about child custody or support or how you will divide your assets. To find out if this option is right for you, speak to our lawyers at Langevin law.

Selecting the wrong type of divorce can make the process hectic and time-consuming for you. Contact our Ottawa simple divorce lawyers at Langevin Law today.

Contested Divorce

You should select a contested divorce when you and your spouse can’t mutually agree on divorce claims. You should start the divorce process and go to court. In contrast, if you lack the necessary technical knowledge, you may find it difficult to negotiate a divorce agreement and to defend your position in court. We advise you to consult with our Ottawa family lawyers so they can advise you appropriately.

The most common expectation after separation is to get a divorce without going to court and for a considerably lesser cost, but this is not always attainable. You might discover that you and your spouse cannot agree on all of the terms of the divorce, even though you first started your case in the hopes that your spouse would consent to the divorce without a fight.

Our experienced divorce lawyers can discuss with you in much greater detail on how to go about with your divorce.    Selecting the wrong type of divorce can make the process hectic and time-consuming for you. Contact our Ottawa contested divorce lawyers at Langevin Law today.
