Can you benefit from an uncontested divorce?

Many unhappy couples in Kentucky and elsewhere put off filing for divorce because they are afraid of the horror stories they've heard - the contentious fight over child custody or the expensive, drawn-out court battle. You may be reassured to learn that there are other options to ending your marriage than fighting it out before a judge. It can help to understand how uncontested divorce works, as well as the potential benefits.

FindLaw explains that such uncontested divorce options as mediation and collaborative law rely on both parties' ability to cooperate and communicate, as well as their willingness to compromise. The benefits you get from an uncontested divorce can include the following:

  • Being private, rather than the details of your dispute being made a matter of public record
  • Minimizing the conflict you and your children are exposed to
  • Teaching you negotiation and communication skills that you can continue to use throughout your life
  • Discovering solutions that you and your spouse can agree upon, which you might not have had in a litigated divorce
  • Costing less and taking less time than a traditional divorce

While you may agree that the potential benefits of an uncontested divorce are significant, you should also understand that these options are not for everyone. For example, a spouse who was abusive or addicted to substances during the marriage might not be receptive to the open-mindedness that is necessary in a non-litigated divorce. For these reasons, you should evaluate your own situation and make an informed decision. The information in this blog is not meant to replace the advice of a lawyer.
