The Benefits of Uncontested Divorce

There are a number of benefits to an uncontested divorce. The first is the cost savings. An uncontested divorce costs a lot less than a contested divorce because the case moves faster and requires less intervention by your attorney. You also have more control over the outcome in an uncontested divorce than what you would if you needed a mediator to help reach solutions or the court to make decisions for you. You may even find that you have a better relationship with your former spouse when the divorce is over – which is especially beneficial if you have children together.

Uncontested Divorce Process

The first step is to consult with an uncontested divorce attorney. You will inform your lawyer that you want to file for divorce so that the process can commence. Of course, the Petition for Divorce will be filed with the court after your spouse has been served, read, and signed the divorce agreement. They are welcome to call your attorney with any questions but must know that your attorney does not represent them.

If there is a minor issue in dispute, a mediator may still be brought in. This will move the uncontested process to a contested one, but it still does not have to be as complicated or expensive. Sometimes – especially if you and your spouse have a workable relationship – talking to one another beforehand and making decisions together can allow the marriage to be dissolved quickly so that you can move on sooner. Nonetheless, an issue such as child custody can result in a custody evaluation if you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement. The fewer issues at play, the faster the process will be finalized.
