A litigated divorce, or contested divorce, is the least likely way a couple will dissolve their marriage. However, it is a significant method because it can force resolution. Many other types of divorce, such as uncontested divorce, collaborative divorce, or mediated divorce are available, but all those scenarios require the parties to cooperate in the settlement efforts and engage in respectful communication with each other. If even one of the parties is unwilling or unable to do so, then the case must be taken before a judge for a fully litigated hearing or trial, and the judge decides how the matter will be resolved, thus moving the parties to a final resolution.
