While the common belief may be that all divorces are protracted, messy affairs, that is simply untrue. A divorce does not have to be lengthy, drawn-out, and hotly contested. In fact, an uncontested divorce, or one in which both spouses agree on the terms of their impending divorce, is a much quicker method of dissolving your marriage, not to mention, less costly. This does not mean a quicker divorce is less difficult or emotionally taxing, and likewise, it does not mean that married couples who are breaking off their marriage on amicable terms should forego hiring an experienced divorce lawyer.
The Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce
The ultimate key to a fast-track divorce is pursuing one that is uncontested. That means a divorce in which you and your soon-to-be ex both agree on the terms of the divorce. While you may have mixed emotions on the terms and sign your name on the dotted line reluctantly, it will ultimately save you a lot of heartache by moving forward in this way rather than pursuing a lengthier, more costly contested divorce.
If you pursue an uncontested divorce, you can:
- Save time: Contesting the terms of your divorce, such as alimony, child support, child custody, child visitation, and the distribution of assets, will inevitably require a lengthy legal struggle and take much longer to resolve. That’s because a family court judge will be the one to decide the terms of your divorce via litigation if you cannot come to an agreement through divorce mediation.
- Save money: Because contested divorces taking longer, an uncontested divorce is significantly less expensive and you do not have to retain your divorce lawyer for as long a period of time as someone who is contesting their divorce. There’s no need to go to trial or make multiple court appearances, pay for transportation, take time off work, or arrange for childcare because of these things, so you will avoid all these costs.
- Save aggravation: Nobody wants to add unnecessary stress to their already hectic lives, especially in the midst of an emotionally difficult divorce. An uncontested divorce, even if you have to go through mediation to eventually agree on the terms of the final divorce decree, allows both you and your spouse to reach a resolution and do so in a more amicable atmosphere that will ultimately behoove you both.
