Resolving disputes creatively

What is an uncontested divorce?

An uncontested divorce is one option for divorcing couples to consider if they agree to the divorce and can agree on the major issues related to their divorce. During any divorce, divorcing couples will need to resolve divorce-related concerns including property division, child support, alimony and child custody and different family law resources can help them do that.

Divorcing couples may wonder what an uncontested divorce is, however, and what one involves. An uncontested divorce can save divorcing couples time and money as an alternative to a litigated, or disputed, divorce which can be more costly and time consuming. Like any divorce process, an uncontested divorce begins with one of the spouses filing for divorce. In circumstances of an uncontested divorce, the other spouse agrees to the divorce and the paperwork process is usually more streamlined.

When divorcing couples can agree to the big divorce-related issues they must resolve, the uncontested divorce process can save time and money and provide for a quicker divorce process. The couple can receive a divorce more quickly with minimal conflict, as there is less opportunity for a conflict when fewer issues are in dispute during the divorce. It also means less information is in the public record which provides a more private divorce process that can be beneficial to divorcing couples with families and to other divorcing couples as well.

An uncontested divorce may not be an option in all circumstances but it is beneficial to consider when the couple can agree to most divorce-related concerns. Other options through the family law process are available to help divorcing couples who have made the difficult decision to divorce so they can reach a divorce settlement agreement through whatever process is best for them.
