An uncontested divorce is a type of divorce in which the parties agree on all of the key issues, such as child custody, child support, alimony, and the division of assets and debts. Modern Law provides these divorces through our sister company for a flat rate of only $1299. An uncontested divorce can be less expensive, less time-consuming, and less emotionally draining than a contested divorce, in which the parties do not agree on all of the key issues and must go to court to have a judge decide the case.
Not all couples are good candidates for an uncontested divorce. In order to successfully complete an uncontested divorce, both parties must be willing to communicate openly and honestly, to compromise, and to put the best interests of the child (if applicable) ahead of their own interests.
Some couples who may be good candidates for an uncontested divorce include:
- Couples who have been married for a short time and have few assets or debts
- Couples who have no children or whose children are grown and independent
- Couples who are able to communicate openly and honestly with each other
- Couples who are able to compromise and put the needs of the child (if applicable) ahead of their own needs
- Couples who are willing to seek the advice of an experienced family law attorney to help them navigate the process and protect their rights
If you and your spouse are considering an uncontested divorce, it’s important to carefully evaluate whether you are good candidates for this type of divorce. If you are able to communicate openly, to compromise, and to put the best interests of the child ahead of your own interests, you may be good candidates for an uncontested divorce. However, if you are unable to do these things, it may be better to pursue a contested divorce.
Modern Law offers uncontested divorces for a flat fee of $1299.00 plus the cost of filing fees.
