Reasons Why Uncontested Divorce is Better
While few divorces have absolutely no disagreements, these disputes don't
necessarily have to be resolved in court. An uncontested divorce is essentially
a divorce where the spouses can reach an agreement as to the terms of
their divorce without engaging in a protracted court battle.
Uncontested divorces are better because they move swiftly through the courts
and are less expensive than their contested counterparts. Historically,
uncontested divorces are much easier on any children involved, and the
spouses are more inclined to adhere to the terms of the divorce because
such agreements were made by them and not enforced by a judge.
Discuss Your Case in a Risk-Free Case Evaluation
At Winghaven Law, LLC, we recommend that every couple seeking a divorce
work out a divorce settlement between their respective attorneys without
going to court. If spouses are unable to resolve disputes on their own,
we recommend mediation, providing
domestic violence is not a factor.
Mediation saves time and money and bypasses a lengthy and expensive court
battle with your soon-to-be ex. More importantly, an uncontested divorce
greatly reduces stress and hostility, thereby allowing both parties to
move on to the next chapter in their life sooner than later.
Despite the fact that uncontested divorce is ideal, we don't live in
a perfect world. High financial stakes and emotional child custody battles
are marks of contested divorces, and sometimes they cannot be avoided.
Regardless if you have a contested or an uncontested divorce, you can
turn to our trusted O'Fallon divorce attorneys for compassionate,
yet tenacious legal representation.
