We often think of divorce as a lengthy, drawn-out court battle that may linger for years and cost a fortune in attorney fees. Fortunately, not all divorces are like that. In some cases, it makes sense to avoid the expense and delay of a traditional courtroom divorce.
Uncontested divorces typically resolve more swiftly and painlessly than divorces involving heavy conflict. The parties are empowered to make their own decisions rather than submitting to a judge. They often end up with more satisfying and workable resolutions.
Various legal tools — such as mediation and other collaborative techniques — can help resolve any questions or disagreements that do arise during the process. A more collaborative approach may be appropriate for you if:
While uncontested divorces involve far fewer complications than contested cases, that does not mean you should forego an attorney entirely. Professional legal advice is critical to making sure you have covered all the necessary grounds and tied up loose ends. Quick solutions and do-it-yourself divorces often end in disaster for everyone involved. A lawyer can help prevent problems from surfacing down the road.
