Is An Uncontested Divorce Right For You?
At Attorney Randy Mora, we know that not all divorces are going to be contentious. In fact, some couples are eager to end their marriages as soon as possible and will do whatever it takes to avoid going to court to do so. We have counseled hundreds of clients in settling their divorces without ever going before a judge.
If you believe it may be time for you and your spouse to file for divorce, attorney Randy Mora can help by informing you of your options and obtaining the most out of the process.
What Is An Uncontested Divorce?
Every divorce requires initial negotiations, but not all negotiations have to occur in a courtroom. In fact, you have the option of settling your disputes before a mediator or arbitrator instead of a judge. Many couples choose this route to reap the benefits of filing for an uncontested divorce.
However, even settlements that are reached outside of court will still need to be approved by the court. A judge will review the divorce settlement to determine that it is not grossly unfair. In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must agree to the terms such as:
- How debts and property will be divided
- How much and for how long child support will be paid
- How much and for how long spousal maintenance will be paid
- Custody and parenting time
If you cannot reach an agreement on these terms and are unwilling to compromise, you must file for a contested divorce.
