What happens in a family law case?

What happens in a family law case depends on how many issues the parties can reach an agreement, either by themselves or with the assistance of knowledgeable attorneys. Ideally, all major issues can be resolved amicably and the case can proceed as an uncontested divorce. In many cases, however, there are some issues which are not readily resolved and which will require that the case proceed as a contested divorce; as such a case progresses, however, the parties can always reach an agreement and the case can become an uncontested one.
