Getting a divorce is never easy. However, that doesn’t mean getting a divorce always has to be messy. When you and your spouse are able to agree on certain things, the process can move along in a smoother fashion and make things easier on everyone.

Why an Uncontested Divorce Is Often Preferable

Here are a few reasons why an uncontested divorce may be a favorable option for you:

  • It allows you to save money on legal fees. Getting a divorce can quickly become very expensive, especially if the two parties can’t agree on the terms such as how to divide assets. The more conversations there need to be, the more you will have to pay for legal services, in or out of the court. An uncontested divorce could save you thousands of dollars.
  • It can be finalized faster. There’s no need to prolong what may already be a painful process. With an uncontested divorce, you can get through the entire process much quicker and begin to move on in your life.
  • It is more private. An uncontested divorce reduces the information that goes into public record with the court. It is the preferable option if you wish to keep negotiations and other discussions confidential.
  • It can reduce conflict and allow you to part amicably. You and your spouse don’t necessarily have to get along to have an uncontested divorce, but this type of divorce can help to reduce contentious feelings between you. It can also make the divorce easier on your children if you have any.
