An uncontested divorce is one where both the husband and wife can agree on how to divide all of their assets and their debts, and if they have children, how to share
custody and child support.
An uncontested divorce is one in which both spouses agree on how to divide assets and debts, decide on support amounts, and work out parenting issues. Once the spouses
reach those agreements, they can complete their divorce paperwork and get a judgment of divorce, often without even having to go to court.
An uncontested divorce costs much less than a court battle or even a negotiated solution that relies on lawyers to do the negotiating. Because you pay a lawyer for all
time spent on your case, including preparing documents, phone calls, emails, and court time, it can get very expensive very quickly.
Uncontested divorce is also usually more efficient. Depending on your state’s waiting period and how long it takes you to work out the details of a settlement, it
could be a matter of just a few months.
These advantages are great, but the most important advantage of an uncontested divorce is that it is so much less emotionally draining for you, your spouse, and your children than a contested case. If you have children, working cooperatively and establishing a decent relationship with the other parent will affect your quality of life for years to come. On the other hand, a bitter divorce battle can poison that relationship and cause lifelong tension and strain for your children
