Reasons to Consider Uncontested Divorce


When it comes to the matter of divorce, an uncontested divorce is the ideal situation. An uncontested divorce can occur when both spouses agree that divorce is in their best interest and would like to get through the process as quickly and painlessly as possible. An uncontested divorce is not about getting as much as you can out of your former spouse or punishing them for actions during your marriage. It's about ending your marriage as efficiently and affordably as you can.

If one spouse or the other cannot agree that divorce is the right option, an uncontested divorce cannot occur. In this case you'll need to either seek marriage counseling or request a contested divorce. This process can be a lot messier and more expensive, but it may be what you have to do in order to move on with your life.

If you and your spouse can agree on an uncontested divorce, you'll be looking at a shorter legal process, and it should cost you less money overall. These are just a few reasons why an uncontested divorce might be your best option if you and your spouse have decided to call it quits.
