What is an uncontested divorce?

You will probably have a lot of questions as you begin the process of your divorce. This is very normal and will be helpful as you go through your journey. One common question that people have regards the difference between an uncontested and a contested divorce and how this will affect their situation. Here is some helpful information about uncontested divorces in Massachusetts.

Divorce is simpler for some people than others. Some separating couples are on rather civil terms, they want to work things out together quickly, such as child support, with minimal arguments and they want to remain in control of assets. When couples can come to an agreement and find solutions for their children and assets without going through a lengthy litigation process, their divorce is known as “uncontested.” 

If a couple cannot come up with solutions that they can both agree on, the divorce is labeled contested.

An uncontested divorce is a smoother, quicker process than a contested divorce, and often nears completion during mediation. In Massachusetts, all divorces go to court, but some are much easier to complete than others.

The judge will read through all materials and ask questions regarding the divorce. People who are going through an uncontested divorce often find that they are able to split their time and make arrangements that are much more agreeable than solutions that would have been formed during litigation.

An uncontested divorce has many perks that more and more people are taking part in. If you are in the middle of a divorce, speaking with an experienced attorney might be very beneficial to your case.
