It may be a myth that half of all marriages end in divorce, but that doesn’t mean divorce is not prevalent among our society. People change over time, and though we would all love to have an amicable divorce, in most cases, divorce is a difficult, often drawn-out process that can leave both parties emotionally drained, especially when one party refuses to play nice.
Also known as marital dissolution, divorce is a court-ordered decree that officially terminates a marriage or a registered domestic partnership. There are two types of divorce:
- A contested divorce is when there is no agreement between spouses or partners in relation to the division of property, money and assets, child custody and visitation, and support issues.
- An uncontested divorce is when the parties in the divorce amicably agree to the resolution of asset division, child or spousal support, and child custody and visitation.
