The Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce

If you and your spouse are able to come to an agreement on all relevant matters, including property division, child custody, and alimony, you may be able to file for an uncontested divorce. This is often a much more efficient and cost-effective option than a contested divorce. Additionally, it allows you to maintain more control over the outcome of your divorce.

Additional benefits of an uncontested divorce include:

  • It can be significantly less stressful than a contested divorce
  • You and your spouse can save time and money on court costs
  • You can keep your personal matters private
  • It allows you to maintain a level of control over the outcome of your divorce

What Is an Uncontested Divorce?

When a married couple is able to come to an agreement on all relevant matters, they may be able to file for an uncontested divorce. This means that they agree on how to divide their assets and debts, whether one spouse will pay the other alimony, if they have children, where the children will live, and how much time the children will spend with each parent.

When filing for an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must draft a marriage settlement agreement. This document will outline all of the terms of your divorce, including how you will divide your assets and debts if one spouse will pay the other alimony if you have children, where they will live, and how much time they will spend with each parent.

The following are some of the topics that you and your spouse will need to agree upon:

  • Property division
  • Alimony
  • Child custody
  • Child support

Once you have completed your settlement agreement, you will then need to file a petition for divorce with the court. You will also need to submit your settlement agreement to the court. If the court approves your agreement, the judge will sign a final judgment of divorce, which will legally end your marriage.

What Is the Difference Between an Uncontested and Contested Divorce?

In a contested divorce, the couple is unable to agree on one or more relevant matters. When this happens, they will need to go to court, where a judge will make decisions on their behalf. This can make the process much more complicated, expensive, and time-consuming.

On the other hand, in an uncontested divorce, the couple is able to agree on all relevant matters. This means that they can avoid going to court and can instead file for an uncontested divorce. If you and your spouse are considering filing for an uncontested divorce, you should not hesitate to retain the services of Advocate Law Firm, P.A.
