Moore, Stoddard, Stoddard, & Wood shares an article outlining the important differences in contested and uncontested divorce cases. There are only four grounds for divorce in South Carolina: namely, adultery, habitual drunkenness, physical cruelty, and one year's separation.

Moore, Stoddard, Stoddard, & Wood, a law firm serving Spartanburg and the surrounding areas, wants to share important information from a recent article that breaks down the differences between contested and uncontested divorce. In the article by lawyer Christian Denmon, what to expect from both varieties of divorce is detailed.

In an uncontested divorce, the least complicated and least stressful of the two, both parties are able to reach a compromise in the terms of the divorce. The process can take just a few months when the two parties are able to agree upon the separation conditions.

A contested divorce, where the two parties cannot agree on the divorce terms, can take anywhere from several months to years to resolve. If terms are not agreed upon by the scheduled trial date, a court judge will use the documents, records, testimonies and the root reason of the separation to grant the divorce.

In either case, the hiring of a family lawyer is advisable. The lawyer will ensure that their client’s rights are protected through the divorce proceedings. The Stoddard Law Firm can help handle the difficult and stressful process of divorce. For more information, please visit their website.
