What is the difference between contested and uncontested divorces?

About 90% of all divorces in America are uncontested divorces, in which spouses are able to settle all of their divorce terms without disputes. This might include settlements regarding child custody, child support payments, property and asset division, and other issues. When spouses cannot agree on these issues, they may file a contested divorce. In a contested divorce, spouses don’t agree on the division of responsibilities, and they often need legal mediation or intervention in order to reach a conclusion in their divorce settlements.
