Uncontested Divorces

Divorce. This word evokes the range of emotions involved in ending a marriage.

It also evokes thoughts of the cost and time needed to complete a divorce, and the confusion that can surround lengthy legal proceedings. Many people facing divorce feel that their lives will be put on hold while their case makes its way slowly through the courts and attorneys collect sizeable fees.

An uncontested divorce means that the spouses are able to agree on the major issues involved in getting divorced, including:

If they are able to reach an agreement, the couple can often file paperwork without any court appearances, and as soon as the required time period (set by state law) has elapsed, the divorce will be final.

Not every uncontested divorce is the same, and not every uncontested divorce runs smoothly. The process is simplest when a couple has no minor children and few assets, including no real property. It also works best if each spouse is self-supporting or clearly capable of easily becoming self-supporting. Some states have simplified procedures available for couples in this type of situation. Such procedures are strictly limited however, and are available only for marriages that were relatively brief, generally five years or less.
