Divorce doesn’t have to be as difficult as it is often made out to be or can be. With an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse agree to an amicable dissolution of your marriage. You work together to settle the issues that need to be addressed. This requires that both parties are on mostly amicable terms and feel confident that they can reach agreements together.
An uncontested divorce will not go to trial, but an experienced divorce lawyer is an important piece of the process. A good attorney will advise you of your rights and explain each option and the ramifications of those options. Though you and your spouse will be making the decisions, you need someone to help you navigate the process.
The Upside of an Uncontested Divorce
Uncontested divorces in Orange County are generally less expensive and less emotionally taxing on spouses, children, and other family members. If you and your spouse are able to make decisions together during this process, there is an increased chance that you’ll remain on friendly terms with each other post-divorce. This makes shared custody and other support arrangements better as you move forward.
No divorce is the same. Each couple has unique needs regarding child custody and support, property division, spousal support, etc. An uncontested divorce allows you the space to deal with these issues in a way that feels best to you. If a divorce requires litigation, a judge must make a ruling based on the parameters of the legal system. An uncontested divorce gives you more latitude in decision making.
