Divorce & Family LAW
We provide compassionate legal service that can assist you in your divorce. We at Tim van Rooyen & Associates understand that a divorce can be difficult and emotionally draining. We strive to conclude your divorce timeously and fairly.
There are generally 2 types of divorce: contested and uncontested.
A contested divorce is when you and your spouse have 1 or more issues that you cannot agree on, like child custody, child support, alimony, or property division.
An uncontested divorce is the opposite, where disputes are resolved out of court and there is no need for a trial. This is usually the kind that lends itself to a quick and smooth online divorce, especially if a lawyer assists you through the process.
The biggest differences between a contested and uncontested divorce are typically cost, time, outcome, and eligibility.
If the divorce is contested, you will more likely need an attorney, which costs money and tends to take more time. In a contested divorce, the outcome usually ends in at least 1 side not receiving what they want. Alternatively, an uncontested divorce will likely be easier to complete and cost less overall
