Uncontested Divorce

Guiding Families Through the Challenges of Family Law, One Step at A Time

O’Fallon Uncontested Divorce Attorney

How to Resolve Divorce Without Going to Court

While divorce is usually the result of conflicts between spouses, the divorce process itself does not have to be adversarial. At Winghaven Law, LLC, we recommend that divorcing couples first attempt a collaborative approach, as it encourages a dissolution that’s free from bitterness, anger, or resentment. Furthermore, the uncontested nature of these types of divorces allows for resolution outside of court.

With a certified guardian ad litem and a certified mediator on our team, our O'Fallon divorce lawyers have the tools necessary to facilitate a collaborative divorce on your behalf.

Uncontested divorces use negotiation and compromise to establish a friendly and collaborative environment. While there are many benefits to this type of divorce, it cannot work unless both spouses are committed to working together to effectuate an amicable divorce.

What Are the Advantages of an Uncontested Divorce?

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 drawn-out court battle.

Other benefits of a uncontested divorce, include:

  • You have more control over the outcome of your divorce
  • You are not at the mercy of a judge
  • It is a lot less expensive than litigation
  • It moves swiftly through the courts instead of having to deal with the court's busy timetable
  • It involves significantly less stress and anxiety
  • You are playing an active role in your divorce
  • Your children will benefit because you will not be engaged in a heated battle with their other parent
  • Working together simply makes life easier on everyone
