Every divorce is different. The particular circumstances of each divorce — from property disputes, to child custody issues, to fault and other concerns — may vary substantially, depending on the couple. At the fundamental level, however, Alabama divorces can be divided into two categories: contested and uncontested.

Though circumstances may vary, an uncontested divorce is generally preferable to contested divorce. If you and your spouse can come to an agreement (from property division to custody), then an uncontested divorce may be possible for you.
The benefits of an uncontested divorce include less stress, less expense and less time. The fees and costs are greatly reduced if you and your spouse can come to an agreeable solution. The stress of an unknown outcome often connected with a contested divorce or the stress and time spent attending repeated court hearings is diminished and in some instances non-existent.
Attorney Daniel Chambers, a skilled divorce lawyer that can positively guide a discussion around sensitive issues relating to the divorce, especially where custody and child support is involved.
However, if you do not believe that a fair agreement can be reached between you and your spouse, then a contested divorce will likely provide the best legal result for you in the long-term. In many cases, pursuing a contested divorce can prevent one spouse from pressuring the other spouse to enter into an unfavorable divorce decree.
Your ex-spouse and their attorney are not required to put your best interests first, so don’t rely on them to guide you favorably through divorce proceedings. It’s important that you consult independently with your own attorney to ensure that your particular interests are represented (i.e., ensuring that the legal proceedings fairly and rightly observe your rights to property and to time with your children, particularly where child custody issues are involved).
