Contested proceedings are more demanding to conduct compared to Uncontested proceedings because they involve more time, effort, resources and costs (e.g. personal stress, legal fees)
With this in mind, parties (and their children) can benefit from saving the time, effort, resources and costs involved in Contested proceedings if they are able to discuss and agree on how to resolve and deal with the breakdown of the marriage and to deal with the Ancillary Matters (e.g. maintenance, division of matrimonial assets, children)
