Why Uncontested Divorce May be Better for You

In Arizona, married couples are able to file for an uncontested divorce by negotiating agreements without holding a trial. They have the opportunity to make decisions about all factors of divorce which would normally be decided by a judge. 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 more efficient and beneficial option.

Advantages of uncontested divorce include:

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

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, child support, child custody, and many other elements that you might not otherwise achieve through litigation.

Issues to Resolve in an Uncontested Divorce

As in every divorce case, there are a number of elements that you will need to decide and 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, such as:

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

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 understand your best course of action.
