LANGLEY LAW FIRM
A divorce doesn’t always turn into a knock-down, drag-out fight. In many case, people are still willing to work with their spouse even though they both want to move forward with a divorce. Although getting a divorce, I may cases many people are still willing to work with their spouse. If you can agree on how to resolve all of the major issues that you need to dissolve your marriage an uncontested divorce might be the best way forward in your situation.
An uncontested divorce is one where neither spouse objects to the divorce and a full agreement on settlement terms has already been reached. The court does not need to decide issues related to property division, allocation of assets and/or debts, the children, or alimony payments. The Judgment of Dissolution for the divorce carries the same weight as it would in a contested divorce.
Because an agreement is already reached before the divorce is filed, there will be no need for numerous court appearances, trial or negotiations. If the court approves of how you resolved the relevant issues, it can grant your divorce and set the agreement forth in the divorce judgment. This often means your divorce can be over much sooner and with much less of a financial cost to you.
While an uncontested divorce can be faster and less costly than a contested divorce, it is still a specific legal process with many requirements before the court can finalize the divorce. Many complications may arise before the end of your case, and it is always wise to seek help and representation from an experienced divorce lawyer from the very start.
