What is an Uncontested Divorce?
First, ask yourself:
- Do you need the judge to make someone do something?
- Do you need the judge to make someone stop doing something?
- Do you need the judge to make any decisions about child custody or property?
If you can answer “No” to all of the above questions, your case may be an uncontested divorce.
However, divorce is rarely simple. Even if the spouses in the marriage believe they have come to an amicable agreement on all issues of the divorce, with the help of an experienced divorce attorney, a couple may avoid the costly and lengthy battle of a contested divorce.
The advantages of an agreed divorce are that it is generally quick, inexpensive, and simple. If you wish to see your divorce completed as quickly as possible and for the lowest cost, an uncontested divorce is the best option.
