Divorce is common in the United States. Over 50% of marriages end in divorce and those cases can often become heated and painful. Under the right circumstances, some couples agree that they want a divorce that has an amicable conclusion free of emotional turmoil or a drawn-out court battle. If both parties can come to an agreement on all the major issues that a divorce must address, they may be able to have an uncontested divorce. Even though both parties want an easy and quick divorce, consulting an attorney and having representation is recommended. If the parties disagree on even one term, the uncontested divorce might become contested, leading to a court case and expenses both parties were trying to avoid. Our experienced attorneys at Paris P. Eliades Law Firm, LLC understand your goals and through collaborative law and mediation, we will be able to guide you through your uncontested divorce and help you move on to a better situation.
Uncontested divorces can become contested
There are a few instances where an uncontested divorce may become contested. If a spouse files for a “fault” divorce and the other party disagrees, they could find themselves in a contested case over the grounds utilized for the divorce. Other times, it is very easy for the issues that must be addressed to become contested. For a couple to continue the process of an uncontested divorce, they must come to an agreement on every aspect of the divorce. These include:
Complications can easily derail the process and land a couple in court. It is recommended that both parties seek counsel that has their goals and best interests in mind. One should choose an attorney that doesn’t push for litigation. An attorney dedicated to their client’s wishes can review documents, negotiate terms, and counsel their client towards an amicable conclusion.
Mediation saves time and money
If you are interested in an amicable dissolution to your marriage, mediation might be the right option for you. Through mediation, all issues a divorce must address will be discussed and agreed upon. Couples are more likely to achieve a common goal that is easier to accept because the fate of their lives is in their hands. Not only are the separating parties happier with the outcome, both time and money are saved in the process.
