An ‘uncontested Divorce’ is simply a Divorce in which the parties agree to cooperate. If the parties have no issues, then they agree as to the Divorce process. If they have issues, then they will agree on all the issues and have the necessary paperwork prepared so that a court appearance would not, in most cases, be necessary.
Everyone wants an ‘uncontested Divorce‘ simply because it’s easier, faster and less costly. The problem is that when disagreements occur, the goal of an uncontested Divorce can be set aside, opening the door to higher costs, not to mention more stress and more time needed to finalize.
Here are 5 steps to ensure that your Divorce will remain uncontested:
- try to keep the lines of communication open–remember Divorce is a process so allow for occasional lapses
- foster a climate of cooperation which means, try to come to agreements whenever possible
- be pro-active–look forward to the next steps and take timely action
- be patient–everyone reacts differently to Divorce so allow your partner the time he/she needs in order to accept the break-up (within reason)
- make sure to meet with an experienced Divorce Attorney so you understand the process as well as your legal rights
An experienced Attorney can explain what is reasonable in your particular situation. With this knowledge, you will be able to communicate and negotiate more effectively. Remember, an ‘uncontested Divorce’ provides more opportunity for mutually beneficial outcomes. A trial may not.
