The Three Biggest Benefits Of Uncontested Divorces


There are very few benefits that come with any divorce case. Still, many divorcing couples imagine that they will have to endure a bitter and combative fight in the courtroom. Fortunately, in most cases, this is not necessary. Many divorce cases are settled outside of the courtroom through negotiations between the two sides. In many instances, these negotiations are not even necessary.

If you are getting a divorce and you and your spouse can agree to all of the different terms, you can get an uncontested divorce. Uncontested divorces have many advantages over contested cases. Below, our Media divorce lawyer explains what these are.

Less Expensive 

The divorce process can be an expensive one and it is not uncommon for people to think there is no way around that fact. Much of the expense of divorce comes from arguments between the two parties. The more a couple argues, the more negotiations that need to happen between the lawyers representing both sides. This adds to the cost of divorce. If you and your spouse can agree to all the different terms of your divorce, you can greatly reduce the costs associated with the process.

A Faster Settlement 

Like how people believe they cannot avoid the cost of divorce, they also think the process has to take several months, or even years. Again, this is not usually the case. A divorce case will take one year or longer if it has to go through litigation but this is not true with uncontested divorces. The waiting period for divorce in Pennsylvania is 90 days from the date the papers are filed with the court. Without the need to negotiate or court intervention, when getting an uncontested divorce you must only allow the waiting period to expire before your case is finalized.

Retain Control Over the Process 

When a divorce case goes to trial, they will present their arguments to a judge before the judge makes all final decisions. These decisions are not only final, but they are also legally binding. Family law judges will apply case law and statute formulas when making these decisions. They will not necessarily consider the preferences of either side. By getting an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse can agree on your own about the terms of the divorce. This will allow you to create customized solutions that are a better fit for you and your family.
