Divorce is never an ordeal that any couple wants to deal with, but sometimes differences in a relationship make it necessary. Divorce occurs every single day when couples are unable to resolve the turmoil in their lives. Should you find yourself dealing with a divorce, there are two types of divorces: contested and uncontested. Here we will take a look at the uncontested divorce.
What is Uncontested Divorce?
An uncontested divorce is the easiest of the two types of divorce. When you file an uncontested divorce it means that you, as well as your spouse, have come to agreements on all aspects of the divorce. This includes issues with child custody, separation of belongings, finances, etc. There are no issues or problems which need to be resolved.
Most couples who are able to file an uncontested divorce find themselves with a multitude of benefits versus a contested divorce. Uncontested divorces are simply easier, and cause far less stress to the couple (and others involved directly) going through the divorce.
Uncontested Divorce Perks
The perks of an uncontested divorce include speedier proceedings, meaning you will be divorced quicker; a more affordable price and perhaps even the elimination of the need for a lawyer. Oftentimes couples who agree on everything handle the matter themselves. This alone can save a ton of cash. Of course you shouldn’t agree to everything simply to receive these perks.
The final divorce decree is a final and binding order. Amendments are not allowed. It is always in your best interest to talk to a divorce lawyer who can ensure that you are handling the case in a manner beneficial to you now and in the future. This is true whether an uncontested or a contested divorce.
