Uncontested Divorce in Katy
A divorce in Katy is considered uncontested if the parties agree on all terms at the outset of the case. Sometimes it is not entirely clear whether the parties have or will agree on all terms or if all the necessary terms have been addressed. These terms can include division of property, conservatorship of children, rights and duties regarding the children, visitation schedule, child support, spousal maintenance, child custody, sale of property, and many, many other potential issues.
Katy Contested Divorce
A Katy Texas case where the parties are unable to reach an agreement on all relevant terms is considered a contested divorce. That does not mean that a settlement of the case cannot be achieved, it simply means that at the outset of the case there are some issues on which the parties will need to somehow reach an agreement. Some of the ways that these issues are resolved include mediation, arbitration, negotiations between parties and/or attorneys, and informal settlement agreements. If the parties cannot reach an agreement on all the relevant issues in their Katy Divorce case ultimately the court will hear the case and will determine the outcome of these issues.
