Divorce terminology is something you will need to be familiar with throughout the entire process. For instance, you may here these terms from time to time Divorce Contested or Uncontested. All these terms mean are if the divorce is contested the parties cannot come to an agreement on issues pertaining to the divorce. These issues could be child visitation, spousal support, child custody, or property division. On the other hand, an uncontested divorce is one where both parties are able to reach an amicable agreement regarding all issues involved.
When the matter is contested it could require more litigation which can at times be costly. An alternative to this could be attempting to attend mediation sessions together. Mediation is not as well known as the traditional court proceeding for determining divorce. Mediation is a newer form of conflict resolution between parties. Mediators are assigned to assist in the flow of communication from one party to another. It is important that all parties are alloted an equal amount of time to discuss any questions or concerns surrounding their pending case. It is important that the mediator remain unbiased throughout the entire process.
