Divorces are either contested or uncontested. In a contested divorce, one or both parties are unable to agree about the divorce itself, property division, custody of child/children, child or spousal support, etc. In an uncontested divorce, both parties agree on all matters and do not need to go to court to make determinations. The uncontested divorce will proceed through the system more quickly.
Child custody can be complex. In addition to the emotional toll that divorce has on the parties involved, parents face critical decisions about child custody, child support, and visitation rights. If the custodial parent must relocate with his/her work and wants to move his/her family, the parent needs experienced legal representation who can effectively mediate on his/her behalf. Effective legal representation can help to demonstrate that the outcome of the parent's need is ultimately the best for the child.
Modifications require approved changes by a court judge.
