Not all divorces have to turn into drawn-out battles in court. In fact, divorcing couples can save a considerable amount of time, money, and stress by collaborating together towards an uncontested separation out of court. If you and your spouse have decided to end your marriage, our firm’s knowledgeable attorneys can guide you and your spouse towards a smooth, collaborative separation and provide the compassionate support you need during this time.
Why Pursue an Uncontested Divorce?
Spouses can experience numerous benefits by pursuing an uncontested separation. By coming together and working out all aspects of a couple’s divorce, couples can greatly reduce the emotional turmoil of their separation and complete their divorce in just a few months – a vast difference from the potentially years-long process of a traditional contested separation. As uncontested divorces all but eliminate the need for courtroom involvement, this method can save couples from the immense financial burden of legal fees and court costs. Most importantly, couples who share children can use this as a means of staying civil and keep the door open to the possibility of a harmonious relationship further down the line.
In order to complete an uncontested divorce, couples must negotiate the following issues:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Asset and debt division
- Visitation rights
It is important to remember that while uncontested separations are preferable, they require a considerable amount of patience and a genuine willingness from both parties to work together. While our firm is dedicated to exploring every opportunity to help you and your spouse reach a mutual agreement out of court, we are fully prepared to go the distance on your behalf to protect your interests should litigation be necessary.
