An uncontested divorce is by far the least stressful and most successful type of divorce to enter into. This should always be the first option when it comes to exiting a marriage; however life does not always provide the easiest way out, especially when dealing with deeply emotional matters.
This type of divorce can be completed the fastest, with some proceedings being finalised in as little as three weeks. This is because an uncontested divorce is one entered into with both spouses being in agreement that the marriage has broken down irrevocably and both agree that the relationship cannot be repaired.
Most importantly, both spouses have the intention to work together to come to mutually beneficial divorce terms in their divorce agreement. The terms of divorce include and are not limited to: maintenance, the division of assets and childcare.
An impartial attorney is chosen and appointed by both spouses for consultation on the care of their interests and in order to draft the official settlement agreement.
The settlement agreement is signed by both spouses and is then made an order of the court.
The cooperation of both spouses and their dedication to creating a mutually beneficial agreement is key to the timeous success of an uncontested divorce, and is the reason the process can take as little as a few weeks to complete.
