Benefits of Uncontested Divorce

Should you forgo a trial?

If you're getting a divorce, you will benefit by discussing your case with a Denver divorce lawyer from Jones Law Firm, PC. As a dedicated team of attorneys devoted to the field of divorce and family law, we are committed to your objectives and will work tirelessly to help you achieve the outcome you desire.

Your divorce is considered uncontested when you and your spouse are able to agree on issues over child custody, child support, alimony, property and debt division. There are an array of benefits to undergoing an uncontested divorce, including:

Parties are More Inclined to Comply with the Agreement

When divorcing couples work together to come up with a mutually satisfying agreement, they are more inclined to comply with the terms of the settlement agreement and parenting plan over the long haul. When a contested divorce is ultimately decided by a judge, there is a greater risk that the other party will not comply with one or more terms of the divorce.

Children are Happier

When parents can work together collaboratively to establish a parenting plan together, there is less arguing and it can dramatically mitigate the harmful effects of divorce on children. When the parents are not fighting over child custody or property distribution, the children are much happier.

Divorce is Much Less Expensive

A contested divorce can take a year or longer from start to finish and cost upwards of $15,000. When a divorce goes to trial, the costs can increase tenfold. In contrast, an uncontested divorce can be accomplished in two months or so and cost around $2,000 depending upon the facts of the case: for example, selling assets such as real estate may increase the time. Instead of wasting money on legal fees in multiple court appearances, it's spent on your attorney negotiating a satisfactory divorce settlement.

You're not at the Mercy of the Judge

Most people like to have a say in child custody and how their assets are divided. In a contested divorce, you completely lose this freedom because the judge decides everything for you and your spouse. The judge decides how property and debts are divided, what property has to be sold, how much spousal and child support is paid, and most importantly, the judge decides who gets the kids. With an uncontested divorce, all of these decisions are made by you and your spouse. Having this control in your case is perhaps the best reason to obtain an uncontested divorce.
