WHY A FRIENDLY UNCONTESTED DIVORCE IS BEST: You avoid a "Contested Divorce"
Everyone knows that when the parties getting divorced fight, there must be two lawyers involved. Each party has one to represent his/her interest. In contested cases, this is an absolute necessity. Without a competent lawyer, you may find that mistakes are made during the divorce procedure that may cause you or your children permanent harm. An experienced lawyer is necessary in contested cases.
But must the divorce be contested? Usually no. Many of thousands of uncontested divorces are granted each year. Unless there is great a dispute over assets or support, there is no reason why two people cannot reach an agreement and avoid and eliminate the emotional and financial problems that naturally arise when two people argue.
You are in charge of your divorce.
No matter what anyone says, divorce can be cruel. When the two parties argue, it only serves to inflame the underlying problem that caused the breakup in the first place. It gets even worse when there are children involved. No matter how hard you try to hide it, they know what's happening, even at very tender ages.
When a couple has the foresight to work together in a trusting relationship for their mutual benefit, and they are entirely informed about the divorce laws and procedures, most divorce issues can be resolved between them.
By keeping the decision process out of court, the individuals can make decisions that benefit the entire family. In turn, it simplifies the divorce process. You have the best understanding of your life and situation.
Nothing can substitute for this knowledge. With careful consideration and a friendly relationship between the couple, a fair and appropriate agreement to resolve your divorce can be reached, and you can obtain that sought-after "uncontested divorce."
Fair Separation Agreements and an uncontested divorce can be reached if the two parties put aside their hostility.
We have all heard about the "contested divorce" and how expensive and heartbreaking it can be. This is the nature of the adversarial method called litigation. Each side hires a lawyer. Each lawyer, with the help of the client, creates the “theory of the case.” This is the theory presented in court. What it generally does is create a scenario that one party is more at fault than the other.
However, these days, unless you are fighting for children, responsibility is not much of an issue. What is vital in these contested divorces is the financial division of property. Whether the parties have a lot of assets or a little asset, litigation becomes expensive because a lawyer, to avoid a claim of malpractice, must go through each costly step in the process whether or not there are no assets.
Before the trial, the courts usually have a conference where the two lawyers tell the judge their side. The judge always tries to settle the case. If that is possible, then the divorce could take place that day. If it is not likely, a date is scheduled for trial, continuing a long and expensive process. One in which no one truly wins. This is why it is so important that the divorcing couple keeps an open mind and put hostilities aside. Only when this is done can an appropriate agreement be reached, and the divorce can be processed as friendly and “uncontested.”
We recommend that every couple first use all possible means to work out mutual terms for the divorce without going to court. If you find that you cannot work things out on your own, we recommend mediation, with or without attorney representation. It's not only that you will save money by working things out yourselves, but by avoiding a lengthy trial, an uncontested divorce usually results in reduced hostility and resentment between the couple, and both can resume their lives easier and quicker.
Animosity and financial strain are reduced if litigation is avoided.
It is the natural result of a litigated divorce that the parties become angry, distrustful, unsure, and confused. It is not far-fetched to believe that the two people can find the middle road and enter into an amicable agreement permitting an uncontested divorce.
You may leave the relationship as friends. This goal is most important when there are children involved. Remember, you may be divorcing your spouse but not your children.
In most cases, the parties still have to communicate with each other about the children for many years to come. Active co-parenting requires mutual respect between the parents. Continued litigation and animosity tend to make co-parenting very difficult. An honest, thoughtful settlement always reduces and can even eliminate the bad air between the couple.
