Why Uncontested Divorce May be Better for You

In Arizona, married couples can file for an uncontested divorce by negotiating agreements without holding a trial. They have the opportunity to make decisions about all elements of divorce that a judge would normally decide. Rather than go through a trial, you must only give your divorce papers to a family court judge, who will submit them for a final decree. This is often the easier and more beneficial route to take.

Advantages of uncontested divorce:

  • It allows both parties to participate in the decision making process
  • Decisions are not forced on either party
  • It allows divorcing couples to lowers costs by avoiding battles in court
  • The divorce process takes place more quickly

Divorce may be a painful process, but there are options if couples can still negotiate with each other. This method also generally allows for both parties to achieve the terms that they desire for alimony, support, custody, and many other elements that you might not otherwise achieve through litigation.

Issues to Resolve in Uncontested divorce

As in every divorce case, there are a number of elements that you will need to decide, and as in most divorce cases, there may be issues that cause tensions to rise. It is important that you and your spouse are able to take an objective approach to these elements and make the decision to amicably resolve them. During your divorce, you and your spouse will need to address various issues:

  • Child support
  • Child custody and visitation rights
  • What to do with the house
  • Property division
  • Division of debts and liabilities
  • Setting up alimony

When the decision-making process becomes rocky and hostile, it is essential to remain objective about the situation and realize that you have the opportunity to achieve somewhat favorable outcomes that you may not otherwise receive in court. Our Phoenix divorce lawyer can guide you through this process and help you to understand the best course of action.
