An uncontested divorce can be a potentially less unpleasant divorce process that may be available to divorcing couples under certain circumstances. It can save time, money and help the divorcing couple resolve their divorce more expeditiously. Divorcing couples interested in this option should be familiar with how it works.

How uncontested divorce works

An uncontested divorce is a simpler divorce process which is why it is best for divorces that do not have a lot of complicated assets or disputes. Couples who do not have any disputes related to divorce-related concerns and who both agree to the divorce may qualify for an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce is a simplified divorce process which is why it can be resolved more quickly, efficiently and less acrimoniously.

If the couple can agree to major divorce-related issues, including financial issues, such as child custody, child support, property division and spousal support, they may also be able to file for an uncontested divorce. The paperwork necessary for an uncontested divorce is usually more streamlined. It will include the grounds for divorce and the property division agreement, as well as any child custody information.

An uncontested divorce typically involves less conflict which can also be beneficial for divorcing spouses and their ability to work through their divorce and work together in the future. Most divorcing couples would like their divorce process wrapped up and granted as quickly as possible and an uncontested, simplified, divorce can potentially do that for couples who qualify for one. Couples entering the divorce process should be familiar with an uncontested divorce and the advantages it may offer them.
