What Are Uncontested Divorces?An uncontested divorce happens when both spouses agree — not only that they should be divorced — but on all the decisions that divorcing couples often have to make. In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse should both agree on issues of child custody and visitation, child support, division of property and debt, as well as attorneys’ fees. There can be many advantages of an uncontested divorce:
- Less stress: Because they involve less fighting and court time, uncontested divorces are often less stressful than contested divorces. This can be especially important when children are involved.
- Reduced cost: Uncontested divorces often use fewer resources than contested divorces. Because couples spend less time hiring lawyers and battling in court, they spend less money. And they have more money to use when moving forward with their lives.
- Privacy: Agreements made by couples in court become a matter of public record. However, disclosures you and your spouse make to each other do not have to be. If you negotiate matters privately between you and your spouse, these private discussions can stay private.
