Not every divorce is contentious and complicated. An uncontested divorce is one in which the parties completely agree on all issues involved, including child custody, property division, child support and spousal support. In these cases, court intervention is not necessary. An experienced divorce attorney can draft a marital settlement agreement or stipulated judgment, which can be filed with the court as the final divorce decree.
The uncontested divorce process generally lasts for six months from start to finish. It is an excellent alternative for divorcing couples who wish to lessen the burden on their children while also avoiding the stress and expense of litigation.
Uncontested divorce is not a viable alternative for divorcing couples who cannot agree on certain issues or for those who have a complex portfolio of marital assets.
