Advantages of an Uncontested Divorce
An uncontested divorce offers several potential benefits, including:
- Affordability: Legal costs are often significantly lower when the divorce is settled amicably.
- Expedited Processing: Because there is no need for litigation, a divorce that is not contested can often be completed much more quickly.
- Privacy: Litigated divorces become part of the public record. Issues in an uncontested divorce are negotiated privately and remain private after the process is finalized.
- Control: A litigated divorce puts the final settlement in the hands of the court. If there is already agreement between the spouses on the major issues, they retain full control over the settlement, and it will be drafted outside of court.
If you are on relatively good terms with your spouse and already have a good idea of what your final divorce settlement will look like, an uncontested divorce is probably a good option. There are times, however, when spouses are on good terms but do not fully agree on key issues such as child support, alimony/maintenance, parental responsibilities (child custody) and parenting time. In such cases, you may still be able to avoid costly and protracted litigation by choosing mediation, collaborative divorce, or another form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
