What Are the Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce?
An uncontested divorce has a number of advantages, not the least of which is that it costs much less than litigating the divorce. A contested divorce means paying an attorney for preparing documents, court filings and appearances, phone calls, correspondence, and expenses, all of which can become expensive. Additionally, an uncontested divorce is more efficient because reaching a settlement may take a few months, rather than a few years.
The greatest advantage of an uncontested divorce is that it is much less of an emotional challenge for the entire family. If minor children are involved, cooperating during and after the divorce will mitigate the emotional harm to the children typically associated with a marital breakup.
Ultimately, the spouses must be able to negotiate agreements on property, support, and parenting. This can be challenging even in an uncontested divorce, however, which makes having proper legal representation crucial. If the parties cannot agree on the key issues, the divorce will need to be litigated in a court of law.
