Benefits of Uncontested Divorce
Many divorces are contested, meaning at least one important aspect of the divorce has not been agreed upon by both spouses. This can be the direct cause of a variety of problems. In an uncontested divorce, the parties can sidestep these complications, finding a favorable compromise outside of the courtroom.
If your divorce is uncontested, you can expect to:
- Save time: A contested divorce can involve many back-and-forth arguments between the two spouses. If a matter is not resolved in one meeting or hearing, it will require another. Naturally, the more meet-ups you need to schedule, the longer it will take to finalize your divorce, especially if you and your spouse each have busy personal or professional lives. An uncontested divorce avoids such conflicts and can sometimes resolve the divorce in a matter of weeks.
- Save money: Multiple disagreements that each require a courtroom hearing to conclude can rack up court costs during a contested divorce. An uncontested divorce will usually only need one day in court – the day the papers are signed and made official – which saves money. Attorney fees are also generally cheaper in an uncontested divorce.
- Save energy: Fighting is exhausting. Trying to challenge every proposition offered by your spouse during your divorce can leave you feeling winded in the end, even if you succeed in achieving your own goals. In an uncontested divorce, you will find that stress levels are much lower; this is a significant benefit if you share any children with your spouse, as young children are sensitive to conflict.
Check the Details Thoroughly
Finding that you and your spouse agree on all aspects of your divorce can be a great feeling, but it can also be misleading. In some cases, divorces become and remain uncontested only because one spouse is compromising too much out of fear of starting a fight. By the time the divorce is finalized, they are left with a feeling of regret that they have given up some of their best interests that could have been protected with a bit of negotiation.
