Uncontested Divorce Lawyer in Monroe

In a day and age when divorce is more common than not, there now exist many ways to complete the process of terminating a marriage. One such way (and perhaps the most popular way) is through uncontested divorce.

Put simply, this is the process of dissolving a marriage through which mutual agreement from both parties is used to establish the terms and conditions of a separation agreement. Dissolving your marriage through uncontested divorce is widely recognized as the simplest method of terminating a marriage; however, it still calls for the wisdom and skill of a Monroe divorce attorney.

Benefits to Uncontested Divorce

Proponents of uncontested divorce argue that it is the best route to the dissolution of a marriage because it allows for the cheapest and most efficient way to end a couple's legal nuptials. At the heart of every uncontested divorce is the idea that the process will be completed amicably and under mutual consent from both spouses involved. As such, the process can be conducted relatively quickly, and for very little money, whereas other methods such as contested divorces require both spouses to devote copious amounts of time and money to the process.

Additional benefits that have been associated with the uncontested divorce process include minimized conflict between the parties involved and relative privacy throughout the course of completing the marriage dissolution. When a couple agrees upfront to negotiate with one another and come to a mutual agreement on the terms and conditions that will be established in their post-marital lives, there is much more room for cooperation, and overall satisfaction with the end results of the agreement that is ultimately created.

Is uncontested divorce right for you?

For many couples, uncontested divorce is a reasonable means for completing the dissolution of their marriage. In fact, it is a coveted one. Unfortunately, this process is not always right for everyone. In some cases, the advantages of an uncontested divorce do no outweigh the hindrances that could detract a couple from choosing this option. For example, couples who are at odds regarding the ideas they have for their post-marital lives might have a difficult time coming to the mutual agreement that is expected to be reached in an uncontested divorce. Some important factors to consider before choosing uncontested divorce as the right option for you are:

  • Do you and your spouse both agree that it's time to end the marriage?
  • Do you feel like you have a good idea about the assets and income of your spouse?
  • Do you have reason to believe that your spouse could be hiding something from you?
  • Do you have a solid idea about the provisions needed to secure your own protection in the divorce?

These are important questions that should be asked of yourself and your spouse in order to determine if uncontested divorce is the right option for you. The desire to end your marriage as quickly and easily as possible is not reason enough to opt for uncontested divorce. In fact, couples who do so could face serious issues that will further delay their divorce, and inevitably require the need for a different legal route despite the efforts that were made to avoid it. Determining whether or not uncontested divorce is right for you is the job of an attorney, so you are encouraged to contact Collins Family Law Group for professional advice and support.

How a Divorce Attorney Can Help

Some people are attracted to the idea of uncontested divorce because they believe that the process cancels out the need for legal representation; however, rarely ever is this the case. The process of completing an uncontested divorce is best done under the advisement that no one other than a qualified legal professional can provide. Negotiating the terms of your divorce is a sensitive subject, whether or not you and your spouse choose to complete the process through amicable negotiation.

At the heart of every divorce is the need to establish how key aspects of the marriage will be handled once the divorce has been finalized. This means that child custody, spousal support, division of assets, and property allocation will all need to be reviewed in order to come up with the terms that each spouse will be expected to abide by once the marriage has been officially terminated. The sensitive nature of such topics naturally calls for the involvement of an attorney whose advice can be sought in order to ensure that your best interests are maintained throughout the process.
