What is an Uncontested Divorce

What is an Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce is a type of divorce case in which the parties involved are able to amicably work out the terms of their divorce, without the bickering or arguing that typically occurs during a contested divorce. If you are able to put aside your differences to resolve the various aspects of your divorce, you will quickly experience the many benefits an uncontested divorce has to offer. Some of these benefits include:

  • Saving Time:  Uncontested divorce cases take much less time to resolve than contested divorce cases.  When the parties can put aside their differences, constructively work through conflicts, and reach mutual decisions without negative emotions getting in the way, a divorce can be resolved within a matter of weeks or months and to everyone's satisfaction. 
  • Saving Money:  Because uncontested divorce cases are resolved quickly, both parties save money in the long run. When a divorce cannot be resolved through settlement negotiations, it will move to court, where legal fees and other related expenses quickly add up. 
  • Emotional Well-Being:  People who can resolve their divorce without constant bickering, insults, or fighting are not subjected to the same levels of stress, anxiety, and emotional exhaustion that typically accompany contested divorce cases. 
  • Children's Best Interest: Resolving differences in an amicable and cost effective manner will also serve the best interests of the children because the children are not caught in a bitter and ugly divorce between their parents. Additionally, the parents can resolve any custody and support issues in a manner that is agreeable to everyone.

  • "I absolutely loved Maria. She helped me a lot and fought hard against the other attorneys. She works hard for her clients and is extremely dedicated. I met with with other attorneys prior to hiring Maria. They were not as aggressive as she was. I would highly suggest Maria."
