Houston TX Uncontested Divorces

Houston TX Uncontested Divorces

An uncontested divorce refers to the situation where the spouses can reach a decision as to the terms of the divorce without having the court decide it for them. In an uncontested divorce, both parties involved are able to discuss, negotiate and set terms for the divorce amicably.  An uncontested divorce does not require the court to listen to, or rule on, claims and requests by either party.  Instead, the splitting couple is able to discuss and decide by themselves, or with the help of a lawyer and/or mediator, the conditions and division of assets and liabilities, custody of and rights, duties and obligations regarding children, child support and any spousal support.  Naturally, uncontested divorces move much more quickly through the court system and are much less expensive than contested divorces.

An uncontested divorce is a simple process and it offers you and your spouse the chance to end your marriage quietly, amicably and with your dignity intact.  It's not right for everyone, but it certainly is something you and your spouse should consider before beginning the lengthy, time consuming, emotionally charged and very expensive process of contested divorce.

The most apparent advantage of uncontested divorce, of course, is its cost.  The simple fact is that any money you can avoid spending on a divorce lawyer is money you can use for yourself after divorce or spend on your kids.  The monetary cost is not, however, the only advantage of uncontested divorce.  If the level of conflict between the spouses is low now, uncontested divorce offers a way to keep it that way.  You don’t have to agree with each other about all issues of your divorce for an uncontested divorce to be right for you.  It's not so much a question of agreement as it is your desire to get through your divorce quickly, in a way that will minimize the cost, in terms of money, emotions and stress, so that your marriage may end amicably and peaceably.
