Irreconcilable issues in a marriage can result in a divorce. These include financial problems, infidelity, constant arguing, lack of commitment, substance abuse and domestic violence. If you are considering a divorce, you should choose a process that works for your situation.
Uncontested divorce, one that involves amicably agreeing on major issues without involving the court, is one of the options. Here are three of its benefits.
Since you and your spouse will agree on the terms of your divorce, including property division, spousal support and child custody and support, without going through court processes, you can save money with an uncontested divorce. A trial can make a divorce expensive.
Taking a divorce to trial can make the process lengthier, as a judge will set a trial date and a mandatory waiting period. With an uncontested divorce, you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse can decide to meet on certain days for a few weeks, discussing the terms and doing due diligence to ensure you both agree with them. You will then file the case to be finalized.
Of course, you will observe the state’s mandatory waiting period and attend a final court hearing, but it won’t be long since you agreed on major things.
It can be less stressful
Divorce can be stressful, and having disagreements can intensify the process. If you and your spouse can be on the same page, the experience may be less stressful.
Further, the process involved in contested litigation can be complicated, making the process more challenging. Since uncontested divorce involves fewer processes, it may be more manageable.
An uncontested divorce offers many benefits, but it may not be the best option in some situations. Assess your case carefully to make the right call.
