Uncontested Divorce in Ohio
Butler County Divorce Attorney
Divorce is often a complicated issue, particularly in contentious environments when spouses are unable to agree on one or more critical issues. However, in an uncontested divorce, spouses are able to agree on every issue in their divorce. While this might not mean they are on friendly terms, it at least signifies their ability to successfully negotiate the terms of their divorce, including issues regarding custody, child support, division of property, and spousal support.
If you are filing for divorce and do not agree on all issues, it is still possible to avoid a court battle. If your case goes through litigation, a judge will make rulings on the issues that matter most to you and your ex, which neither you might not agree with.
Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce
The biggest benefits of an uncontested divorce are both emotional and financial. A contested divorce can be a time-consuming and costly process since attorneys have to spend vast amounts of time negotiating and preparing for trial. There will likely be fees for expert witnesses, private investigators, mailing fees, and mediation costs. Additionally, its inherently adversarial tone is emotionally costly as well, causing both parties stress and heartache.
Disadvantages of an Uncontested Divorce
An uncontested divorce sounds ideal, but is not always the right option for divorcing spouses. For example, if there is an especially heightened sense of animosity between spouses, an uncontested divorce might not work. Divorce is never one-size-fits-all, so be sure to contact an attorney to ensure that you are making the best decision for your set of circumstances.
