Is Uncontested Divorce Right for Me?

Although uncontested divorces account for a vast majority of divorce proceedings, many couples going through the process may still struggle to decide if this is the correct route for them. Uncontested divorces occur, generally, when spouses can agree on divorce decisions without going to trial. While uncontested divorces are usually quicker and more amicable than contested divorces, this option may not be right for every couple. There are a number of factors to consider before deciding on an uncontested divorce.

Considering Uncontested Divorce

Besides spouses being able to agree on all divorce terms, there are various other elements that can help you determine if an uncontested divorce is your best option. If you and your spouse meet one or more the following criteria, uncontested divorce may be right for you:

  • Neither of you wants to go to court
  • You want your divorce to be as civil and fair as possible
  • You are able to agree on a number of issues, including division of assets or debts and child custody/support
  • You do not want your children to go through a difficult divorce proceeding filled with conflict

While the benefits of an uncontested divorce are many, the legal process can still be confusing and frustrating for individuals who do not have a legal background. With this in mind, the help of an experienced divorce attorney can be an invaluable asset in your divorce proceedings.
