Weigh The Disadvantages And Advantages Of An Uncontested Divorce To Determine If It Is Right For You

For most people, divorce is both a huge and tragic event. For this reason, many people want to begin the process and end it as quickly as possible. This desire often leads to an uncontested divorce, a divorce in which you and your spouse are in full agreement. The most important thing to understand about this type of divorce is that it is not for everyone. Take some time to familiarize yourself with both the disadvantages and advantages of this type of divorce to determine if this method is right for your situation.

Disadvantages

Complicated for business owners. If you and your ex owned a business, uncontested divorces are often just as complicated as contested divorces. Even if you and your spouse come to an agreement on the way you will split up your business ownership, many of these agreements must be reviewed in separate hearings that can prolong the length of the proceedings. You might find that your uncontested divorce is just as long and as expensive as a contested divorce.

Jurisdictional restraints. It's also important to consider that uncontested divorces are not granted within every jurisdiction. Additionally, even if they are legal within your area, there are often additional requirements that come along with qualification. Simply stating that you and your ex agree on the divorce terms is not always enough to satisfy this requirement. Your attorney can inform you of the local requirements within your area.

Advantages

Increased privacy. All information from divorce proceedings ultimately makes its way into public records. With an uncontested, you don't have to divulge as much background information and you don't have to hand over as much of your personal information to the courts. With a contested divorce, you have to provide a substantial amount of information. The less information shared with the courts also means the less information disclosed in public records, protecting your privacy.

Less emotional turmoil. For some people, the feelings and sadness of divorce are prolonged when they have to go back and forth during a long and bitter divorce trying to agree on every single line item. With an uncontested divorce, all agreements have already been made. Compared to a contested divorce, an uncontested divorce is much shorter. Being able to come to a resolve faster can help reduce much of the emotional turmoil.

Divorce is both a sensitive and large step, an attorney can help you make the right decision. Don't hesitate to ask your attorney questions to help lead you in the right direction. To find out more about divorce, speak with someone like Madison Law Firm PLLC.
