Uncontested Divorce

Divorce is one of the hardest things that you can go through. It is challenging, emotionally draining, and may take an extended period of time for the dust to settle. Some are fortunate enough to be in a situation where both parties have decided that separation is for the best and are able to go about it peacefully. For couples that are able to cooperate through the divorce, they will likely need an uncontested divorce lawyer. That way the two parties can get through the divorce efficiently and move on to the next chapter in their lives. At Affordable Family Law, we want to help you get through your amicable separation with guidance from our team and make it a quick process for all involved. 

What is an Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce is a situation where both spouses mutually agree on the terms of their separation. This will include how their assets are to be divided, what child custody will look like,  and the spousal support or child support agreements. This approach allows couples to avoid lengthy court battles and instead reach a settlement through negotiation and compromise outside of the court. An uncontested divorce lawyer acts as a facilitator, ensuring that both parties are fully aware of their rights, assisting with legal documentation, and working toward a fair and satisfactory result.


Hiring an uncontested divorce lawyer is a viable option for couples who are willing to cooperate and negotiate in good faith with one another. If you and your spouse share a mutual desire to minimize conflict and move forward, hiring an uncontested divorce lawyer can provide knowledgeable assistance in navigating the legal aspects of your separation.



The Process of Using an Uncontested Divorce Lawyer

The first step typically involves an initial consultation with a lawyer, where we assess the couple’s situation and determine if an uncontested divorce will be able to be achieved. If both parties are willing to work together, the lawyer assists in drafting a comprehensive separation agreement that covers all aspects of the divorce. This will include assets, child custody, alimony, and child support. We will guide the couple through the negotiation and revision process, ensuring that the agreement reflects their wishes and is legally sound. Once both parties have reviewed and agreed upon the terms, we will assist in the finalization of the paperwork and filing with the appropriate court. Throughout the process, we will act as a mediator and legal advisor, helping the couple navigate any challenges that may arise and providing guidance to ensure smooth and timely results. With our help, we want to promote cooperation and hope to reduce the emotional and financial strain often associated with traditional divorces.

What is the Benefit of an Uncontested Divorce Lawyer?

Even if you and your spouse agree that separation is in everyone’s best interest, there is a lot that goes into making a divorce final. There is paperwork that has to be done and whatever is agreed upon has to be put into writing for both parties to have access to refer back to. Having an uncontested divorce lawyer means that they will guide you through the entire process, ensuring that it is all done by the law. With us on your side, you will be able to give yourself peace of mind that everything will be done correctly. Not to mention, uncontested divorces tend to be quicker and more cost-effective compared to contested divorces. With minimal conflict, an uncontested divorce lawyer helps couples save both time and money.

Uncontested Divorces are Beneficial for Relationships

 These types of divorces offer significant benefits for relationships, especially in terms of fostering cooperation and preserving positive dynamics between spouses. By choosing to pursue an uncontested divorce, couples demonstrate a willingness to work together and find common ground, which can be invaluable in maintaining a respectful and amicable relationship during and after the divorce process. This is not only beneficial for the couple that is separating but if there are children in the picture. This cooperative mindset lays the foundation for effective co-parenting, minimizing the negative impact on children and promoting their well-being. Additionally, the reduced conflict and stress associated with uncontested divorces contribute to a smoother transition into post-divorce life, allowing both individuals to move forward in a healthier and more positive manner. This will positively impact the children involved as well, making the transition for them a little easier. Having parents that are able to get along and work together for their children after a divorce can make all the difference for everyone involved.
