Uncontested Divorces

Not every divorce involves a heated dispute over assets, custody, alimony, and other sensitive issues that come with the territory. Sometimes, it’s simply a matter of two people no longer wanting to be together, romantically or legally. They mutually decide to move on, and are willing to work together to make sure that happens smoothly.
The attorney has handled numerous divorce cases over the years. Some are heated, complex, and drawn-out; but others are more simple and straightforward.
We are confident we can assist you if your case is uncontested.  In helping our clients, we always advise them of the positives of working with their spouse and the advantages of cooperating with their partner rather than against them.

Is My Divorce “Uncontested”?

Divorces fall into two legal categories: contested, and uncontested. Your divorce is uncontested if you and your soon-to-be-former spouse both more or less agree on the major issues at hand. This can include custody, child support, alimony, division of marital assets and debts, and other matters that come up when a legal marital union is dissolved.

If your divorce is uncontested, you’ll probably have an easier time with the process. The divorce lawyer uses a “collaborative law” approach whenever possible, allowing you and your spouse to work together in a safe, collaborative environment to achieve mediation and figure out compromises that you can both agree on.

There are two main requirements for a divorce to be legally considered “uncontested”:

The Bright Side of an Uncontested Divorce

For the most part, a divorce that’s uncontested will be faster, less costly, and less emotionally trying than a divorce in which there are serious disagreements between the partners that must be resolved in court.

In many cases, you will not really even need to set foot in a courtroom or involve a judge. Instead, you and your spouse can reach agreements via mediation, and settle out of court. Because there’s less litigation involved, you won’t need to spend as much time and money on your divorce proceedings. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.
