Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce in Oklahoma

While no two divorce cases are the same, all fall into one of two categories in Oklahoma: contested or uncontested.

Contested Divorce

A contested divorce occurs when the spouses do not agree on one or more issue involved in the separation. These issues may include:

  • Child custody
  • Child Support
  • Division of the assets
  • Alimony/spousal support

In some instances, you and your spouse might disagree on the grounds for the divorce or whether the divorce should occur at all. If you are unable to reach an agreement on all of these issues, the case will proceed through the court system, which can be a lengthy process.

Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce is just as it sounds: both spouses agree to all of the terms of the separation so there is no need for mediation or litigation. An uncontested divorce is faster and less expensive to resolve than a contested divorce.
