Contested Divorce FAQs

Can I contest a no-fault divorce?

Under the no-fault divorce system in the UK, one cannot contest the reason for the divorce itself. However, aspects such as financial settlements or child custody arrangements can still be contested.

Why might a divorce be contested?

Reasons for contesting a divorce can include disagreements over child custody, financial settlements, property division or dissatisfaction with the grounds for divorce presented by the other party.
