Uncontested Divorce Attorneys
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.
At 123 Divorce Company, our team of skilled local divorce attorneys have handled quite a few divorce cases over the years. Some are heated, complex, and drawn-out; but others are more simple and straightforward.
We’re as confident handling uncontested divorces as contested ones, and in most cases, we’ll try to help our clients understand early on that working together with the spouse can be a lot easier than fighting against them.
We’re always on your side — whether or not your spouse is, too.
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. Our attorneys use 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”:
- Both spouses want a divorce, and agree that the marriage cannot be salvaged;
- The spouses both agree together about how they want to divide up their assets and their debts;
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.
Do I Need an Attorney for an Uncontested Divorce?
Actually, yes, it’s in your best interest to hire a legal representative during the divorce proceedings, even if it’s amicable and there aren’t any outstanding disputes between you and your spouse.
