An uncontested divorce may be right for you if both you and your partner are willing to work together to find an agreeable solution. Texas couples without children and with simple and clear assets can benefit from an uncontested divorce. A couple with children who understands and agrees upon the roles they will play after the divorce are also good candidates for an uncontested divorce.
NAVIGATING THE LEGAL PROCESS
At Pfister Family Law, we help couples navigate the legal process by drafting the necessary documents and divorce agreement. If you and your partner have a solid understanding of your assets and a shared vision of child care, it may be in your best interest to seek an uncontested divorce. In an uncontested divorce usually both parties have an attorney. At Pfister Family Law we advocate for and protect our client.
THE ADVANTAGES OF AN UNCONTESTED DIVORCE
There are many advantages to this type of divorce beyond it being low-cost and relatively fast. An uncontested divorce is an amicable divorce that is also:
- Low conflict
- An opportunity to negotiate the terms
- More control over the final outcome
WHEN A DIVORCE IS MORE COMPLEX
While an uncontested divorce is a good fit for some couples, it is not the best choice for some situations. If you have any of the following, consider speaking with an attorney about other options, including a contested or high-conflict divorce:
- Violence within the marriage
- Children with special needs
- Complex assets
- A family business
- When one spouse has little or no knowledge of the family's assets
- High net worth
- Contested custody, support or visitation issues
- Non-traditional visitation issues
When either party lacks the financial expertise to fairly value the property, then other options should be explored with a qualified attorney. If detailed or unorthodox custody arrangements need to be made, an attorney can ensure that the agreement is fair and in the best interest of the children involved.
