Given the option, an uncontested divorce is far superior to a contested divorce. Why? Because it is much less costly, is simple to get through and more important, it allows for the partners to end their marriage with some sense of dignity intact. Nevertheless, an uncontested divorce does not work for everyone. Of course, in an uncontested divorce the divorce process is more time efficient and much less costly than litigation but bear in mind that in an uncontested divorce, the divorce lawyer you choose cannot represent both parties. For ethical reasons, the divorce attorney you choose must represent only one or the other parties involved. To find out whether you should plan on an uncontested divorce, contact our offices and find out whether you are a good candidate for an uncontested divorce.
Getting Past Lengthy Litigation
Although the marriage is coming to and end, some couples are able to recognize the importance of agreement and therefore when there is a mature approach, very few problems arise in the petition for divorce. And even if there are a few disagreements, it doesn’t necessarily mean these issues have to be resolved in a court. In other words, one spouse reaches a decision regarding the terms of the divorce without going to trial and the other partner agrees. Naturally, an uncontested divorce moves faster through the court system. In short, getting past lengthy litigation and trial processes in an uncontested divorce leads to far less hostility, plus both parties are usually able to get on with their lives more rapidly. Your family law attorney will support you in choosing correctly.
Preparing for an Uncontested Divorce
An uncontested divorce can take place much faster than most people realize, especially if both parties are prepared with all the necessary information and both have agreed on the primary issues. A family law lawyer can usually get the paperwork prepared almost immediately and if the intensity of conflict is low, an uncontested divorce will be over much faster. Naturally, even if it is an agreeable divorce, each of the parties involved may not concur on everything, but if the practical side of both partners’ kicks in and the desire to get through the divorce is paramount, both parties will compromise and end the marriage easily. If there are some issues, it just means each side needs to spend a little time negotiating before the marriage is dissolved. Your divorce attorney will provide you with the best ways to keep calm and rational as that is the best way to get through a very emotional situation.

When an Uncontested Divorce is Not a Good Idea
There are times that an uncontested divorce is not a good idea. The first is when there may be domestic violence issues. The victim of domestic violence cannot negotiate with someone who is irrational and therefore the victim may not be protected in an uncontested divorce. Another reason a contested divorce is a better choice occurs if both parties cannot communicate effectively with each other or if one or the other party refuses to discuss the divorce. Without discussion, there is no chance for resolution. In this type of situation, you may just have to bite the bullet and go through the process with a contested divorce proceeding. Finally, an uncontested divorce will not work if one or the other spouse is greedy. When both are well informed about state divorce laws, reasoning will eventually rule, but if one or both are ignorant, the need for two separate divorce lawyers to get it figured out effectively will probably be necessary.
