Your divorce does not need to be a heated contest with shouting matches and constant disagreements. In many scenarios, divorcing couples can actually keep things amicable and therefore easier, cheaper, and quicker if the situation is approached responsibly and carefully. Talk to our Burleson uncontested divorce lawyers from Coontz Cochran today to learn more.
What Are the Benefits of Contested Divorce?
When you and your spouse agree on all aspects of your divorce, it creates an uncontested divorce. Keeping things civil and simple between the two of you does more than change the title of the divorce, though. It actually comes with several benefits that are difficult to obtain in any other type of divorce.
Key benefits of an uncontested divorce include:
- Saving time: If you plan ahead properly and set out to keep your divorce uncontested, you might find yourself officially divorced within a month or two; contested or complex divorces can easily take a year or longer to finalize. Most of the delays come from scheduling and waiting for court dates. Since an uncontested divorce might only need to go the courtroom once – to make it official – plenty of time can be saved.
- Saving money: Because fewer court dates are required, an uncontested divorce can save you a considerable amount of money simply by reducing your court fees. Family law attorneys also usually charge by the hour; if your uncontested divorce wraps up quickly, you will likely save on attorney fees.
- Saving energy: Uncontested divorce is significantly less draining to your own personal energy stores. Frustrations and arguments that can crop up in a typical divorce are exhausting, so being able to sidestep many, if not all, of those potential conflicts can be a huge relief. Additionally, the overall lack of conflict can make things easier for any children you might share with your spouse.
Careful Not to Rush Ahead
Uncontested divorces undoubtedly come with many advantages that will interest you. Trying to force your divorce plan to be uncontested, however, is not ideal and can actually damage your best interests. Do not agree just to agree and avoid trouble. You should only agree to a condition of your divorce if you think it is actually fair and works well for you both. When divorcing couples turn a blind eye to disagreements because they are afraid of slowing down the process, it usually concludes with one party feeling shorted or ignored.
