My husband filed for divorce in Maryland and I'm working on submitting an answer and am now filling out my information report and am wanting to know should I check the box saying the case is contested or uncontested ? I do not agree with one of the counts for the divorce which is that I abandoned him and would like my husband to give me some monetary marital property If I do contest it will I have to hire an attorney if he doesn't want to cooperate or could I just drop it and the divorce will go through anyway? Thanks for your help
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
An uncontested divorce is one in which spouses agree on relevant issues such as division of property, child custody/support, and alimony.
