Making Divorce as Simple as Possible: Uncontested Divorce

You have heard horror stories about divorce. If you haven’t had firsthand experience with the process, it might terrify you. The truth is that divorce is rarely easy, but the difficulties vary couple-by-couple. It can be emotionally and psychologically stressful, expensive, and some combination of those and more. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. It is possible to have a better divorce experience than those of which you’ve heard. Making divorce as simple as possible starts with you and your spouse.

The Uncontested Divorce

The uncontested divorce is a divorce that neither spouse opposes. More than that, it’s a divorce in which both spouses agree on almost, if not everything. Everything from finances, to assets, to children is mutually-determined by both parties. For this to work, both spouses must be able to sit down and discuss terms amicably. They do not have to do alone, of course, but they ultimately don’t need the important decisions made for them by a third party, like a mediator or a judge.

The Simplified Dissolution of Marriage

For some spouses, there may be an option for a Simplified Dissolution of Marriage. Not all marriages qualify for this type of divorce, but those who meet certain criteria—agreeing that the differences are irreconcilable, agreeing on the type of divorce, having no children, and more—may be able to file this way. It could save a great deal of time and money.

Both the uncontested divorce and simplified dissolution are potential time and money savers. Standard divorces can seem to drag on. Both people must be present, submit their requirements, and take the time to negotiate, which can take outside and inside the courtroom. All that costs money.
