What Happens in a Contested Divorce?

When couples cannot agree on the terms of their divorce, the courts are allowed to step in and make a decision on their behalf. This is referred to as a contested divorce, as opposed to the more collaborative option of uncontested divorce. After a required mediation phase, each spouse retains separate legal representation and is given an opportunity to present their case in court. These bench trials have no jury and generally proceed like any other trial, including opening statements, witness questioning, cross examinations, and closing statements. After each side has presented their arguments, a judge will issue a final decision that is enforceable by law.

Most often, high net-worth divorces typically end up being contested. It is important to note, however, that contested divorces can potentially take years to complete, making it imperative for divorcing spouses to make a reasonable effort to pursue an uncontested separation prior to commencing litigation.
