How is contested divorce different from uncontested divorce?

Contested divorce is much less common than uncontested divorces, making up about only 10% of divorces nationwide. These divorces mean that a couple cannot agree to the terms of a divorce, and need to settle them through litigation, mediation, or other means. Contested divorces tend to take longer to complete, and can be more costly for each person involved. In an uncontested divorce, spouses generally agree on the divorce terms, get through the divorce more quickly, and end up spending less time and money in court.
