Uncontested Divorce vs Contested Divorce
The type of divorce you choose, either contested or uncontested, depends largely on the type of relationship you have with your spouse, and the ways in which each of you views your split. If both parties are able to reach an agreement about the majority of the big decisions in a divorce, they can go through with an uncontested divorce. However, when spouses cannot agree about the various aspects of their divorce, they must go through a contested divorce.
Many spouses do not see eye to eye on how they wish to end their marriage. If you are unable to agree on major decisions involving property division, alimony, child custody, or child support, you will need the help of your local court. In a contested divorce, both spouses and their respective attorneys will come to court where the divorce case is presented to a judge. The judge will decide what is best for the couple, and will have the final say regarding property division, child custody, and other divorce aspects.
Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce
If you and your spouse are able to resolve any differences amongst yourselves without court and complete an uncontested divorce, you may experience a number of specific benefits:
- Save time and money - utilizing negotiation or mediation as a way of resolving a dispute is less expensive and far less time consuming than going to court to have a judge rule upon the matter. Better yet, if you and your spouse already agree on all of the terms of your divorce, you can complete an uncontested divorce in a relatively short amount of time and often for a flat fee.
- Save headache, stress and hassle - a contested divorce in court typically results in heightened emotions, not only due to the time and money involved but due to the fact that it will seem that spouses are fighting over every relevant issue. This can cause a great deal of stress for both spouses and for any children involved.
- Reach your own agreements - if you are able to complete an uncontested divorce without the intervention of a judge, you will be able to reach your own agreements regarding custody, support and property. This is often far more beneficial than having a judge who does not personally know you and your family's situation rule upon the matter. You may be able to take your own personal preferences into account if you reach your own agreement.
