If you are seeking a divorce, yours will fall into one of two categories: contested or uncontested. Your case is considered contested if you and your spouse do not agree about divorcing, how to divide your property and debts, or who should get custody of the children.
On the other hand, a divorce is "uncontested" if you and your spouse are able to reach an agreement about all of the issues in your case. An uncontested divorce is favorable, and it allows you and your spouse to end your marriage quietly and with dignity.
At the Law Office of Brett H. Pritchard, the more time we spend with people who are going through the painful process of divorce, the more convinced we become that uncontested divorce is the best way to end the majority of marriages. As firm believers in finding the best and least expensive way to end a marriage, we would be glad to put our 18 years of experience to work for you in the pursuit of an uncontested divorce.
While the most obvious advantage of an uncontested divorce is cost, the simple fact that any money avoided spending on litigation is better spent on life after divorce, or on one's children makes uncontested divorce a logical alternative over a protracted court battle.
More benefits of an uncontested divorce, include:
An uncontested divorce is not optimum in all cases. It is not a good idea when one of the spouses is verbally abusive towards the other spouse, or when there is ongoing domestic violence in the home or relationship. In such cases, the victim and their children need an advocate, and this is difficult to accomplish in the context of an uncontested divorce.
