Contested Divorce Versus Uncontested Divorce

Let's assume that you and your worthless spouse, "Sluggo," have decided to get a divorce. Or, to be more accurate, you have decided it for him! You are fed up with Sluggo sitting around the house every day, (instead of getting a job), while he drinks beer and watches everything on t.v., from "The Price is Right" to "One Life to Live." But the question remains: Will you be able to get an uncontested divorce or a contested divorce? You realize that an uncontested divorce would be a lot cheaper. But how can you know which type of divorce applies to your situation? Here are some tips:
First of all, you must know what an uncontested divorce means. An uncontested divorce means that you and Sluggo have worked out all the terms of your divorce, including such issues as property and debt division, along with who gets primary physical custody of little Sluggo, Jr.
But the next part of your answer may not be so simple. In other words, will Sluggo be reasonable and agree to all your terms of divorce? If he will, and if the divorce terms are in a manner which the divorce judge will approve, then you may be able to get a relatively quick, cheap uncontested divorce.
But if Sluggo is unreasonable, or spiteful, then you will need to discuss with your divorce attorney what it will require to drag him from the couch and take him to court, (in a contested divorce).
In short, you have only "one life to live," and whether "the price is right" for you to get an uncontested divorce will probably depend upon whether or not your worthless spouse, Sluggo, will be reasonable and cooperate with you and your divorce lawyer!
