Understanding Uncontested Divorce

A Mesa lawyer can make sure your interests are protected

In some divorces, both parties involved are willing and able to agree to the terms of the divorce without argument. This is referred to as an uncontested or "no-court" divorce.

There are some advantages to an uncontested divorce. When both spouses involved are able to come to a mutual agreement regarding issues such as child custody, child support, division of property and allocation of debt, there is much less paperwork and litigation involved. This can impact the overall amount of time and money spent on the divorce. An uncontested divorce can also cause much less stress for everyone involved, including children.

You still need an attorney even for an uncontested divorce

There is quite a bit that the parties involved can handle on their own if they are in agreement about the terms of the divorce, including the completion and filing of necessary paperwork. But we strongly suggest that you still take the time to discuss your case with an experienced family attorney. At Brown, Naegle, Crider & Jensen LLC, we've seen many situations arise in the past where spouses involved in a divorce start out very amicable and willing to work with each other. However, because divorce is such a big decision and affects so much in life, things can change very quickly.

Some people believe that attorneys will always push to make the divorce more contentious. However, Brad Crider and his team believe in minimizing conflict as long as their client's interests can still be protected. In fact, having an attorney in your corner can actually ensure that your divorce continues uncontested. You don't have to see every single issue eye to eye with your spouse to still have an uncontested divorce. As long as you both agree to work together on certain issues, you can still proceed without litigation.
