The Benefits Of An Uncontested Divorce

Divorce can be a very difficult and trying time for all parties involved. Often times, this plays a key role in determining what type of divorce each person would like to pursue.

While it is not often that both parties are in total agreement when it comes to their divorce conditions, child custody, and division of assets, these issues may need to be resolved by mediation or with a contested court hearing.

However, there are situations in which both parties are in full agreement, and do not want to put themselves through the emotional and physical toll a contested divorce can cause. With an uncontested divorce, this can be achieved.

Here are some of the benefits of an uncontested divorce:

  • An uncontested divorce involves less paperwork, since both parties are essentially agreeing to the terms of the divorce.
  • An uncontested divorce involves less time and can be completed without the need of divorce proceedings and court hearings.
  • An uncontested divorce is less expensive. Since the process is shorter and a court hearing is not always necessary, this will eliminate the costs for unnecessary steps.
  • An uncontested divorce is more private. Since all divorce proceedings are made public, with the less paperwork involved with an uncontested divorce, there is less information for the public to see.

Unfortunately, not all divorces are suitable for an uncontested divorce. It is best to seek the advice of your divorce attorney before deciding which type of divorce will work for you.
