Types of Divorce in California

Let a Placer County Divorce Lawyer Navigate You through the Process

California recognizes two forms of divorce: contested and uncontested divorce. In its simplest definition, an uncontested divorce refers to a divorce where both parties agree and have come to mutual agreements regarding all aspects. This can include things like child visitation rights, property division arrangements, alimony, and other issues relating to the dissolved marriage.

A contested divorce, on the other hand, refers to a divorce proceeding where one or both divorcing parties are cannot come to a mutual agreement regarding the divorce and its related issues. Although the couple will have a chance to work things out by way of mediation or negotiation, the family court will most likely intervene and litigation will be needed to resolve the issues at hand. Once a resolution has been made, the court will order a final divorce decree.
