An uncontested divorce is a divorce obtained when both spouses agree to the terms regarding child support, alimony, child custody, time sharing, and distribution of assets and debts. No trial is necessary. Even so, you must make certain that your rights are protected. A Parker & DuFresne, P.A. attorney is the best choice for taking you through the process of an uncontested divorce.
An uncontested divorce usually occurs when the parties have an amicable relationship. In turn, the couple can save time and money and go on with life without the stress of a heated divorce. An uncontested divorce has many benefits because the parties work through their lawyers to obtain a settlement.
The key factor to a successful uncontested divorce is compromise and cooperation. This method of divorce, however, is not right for everyone. If one spouse will not agree or cooperate, then an uncontested divorce is not possible without using dispute resolution techniques. Mediation through a private mediator or through a court assigned mediator is one example. A trained, neutral third party helps the parties negotiate an agreement.
An uncontested divorce case hearing is usually simple and brief. It may take place in a private courtroom in the family court area of the courthouse. A written Marital Settlement Agreement between the parties is introduced in Court and becomes part of the final divorce decree. Usually the Settlement Agreements are accepted by the judge. However, they are not binding and may be rejected due to any of the parts being unfair to one of the parties.
