Uncontested divorce is a great option for many couples. Though a couple has decided to part ways, thereâ��s no reason to be bitter and angry. Generally speaking, when couples can divorce and move on with their lives in a peaceful manner, itâ��s better for everyone involved. It can be less expensive and time-consuming, and often less stressful.
There are a few important issues that you and your spouse should mutually agree upon first and these include:
Even with an uncontested divorce, it's still a good idea to go ahead and get professional legal advice and help. This is especially true if there are children and/or property from the marriage. Though an uncontested divorce can go much smoother, itâ��s important to make certain that the terms of the divorce are properly spelled out.
There are some topics that a couple must work out between them and others that the state of Texas will decide, such as the amount of child support per child. If the couple hits a snag, then mediation may be called for. With mediation, couples will have an impartial party to help them work through these issues and arrive at an agreement that is suitable for both people.
Uncontested divorce doesn't work for every couple, but if both parties are amenable, then it can save time, money and worry. Each individual must be reasonable in what they desire to take away from the marriage. In some cases, an uncontested divorce is unwise. These include divorces with a large amount of community property or where abuse was going on.
