Uncontested Divorce in Jacksonville, FL

How does this differ from a traditional divorce?

An uncontested divorce can be defined as a legal separation in which both parties are able to come to an agreement about the terms of their divorce without going to trial. When taking a more amicable approach to ending their marriage, some couples have found that they are able to save money and time by resolving all necessary issues through mediation.

Although this may sound ideal, an uncontested divorce is not for everyone. Since this process requires both parties to compromise on sensitive matters like child custody, property division and alimony, some couples are simply unable to come to an agreement on their own. It is for this reason that most divorces require the intervention of a judge.

That is not to say, however, that this form of divorce is not right for you and your former spouse. If handled correctly, an uncontested divorce may serve as a more efficient and cost-effective way for you to successfully dissolve your marriage and walk away with a fresh start.

In fact, any couple that is willing to resolve the matters of their divorce amicably should attempt to do so before spending an unnecessary amount of time and money on a drawn-out, contested divorce. To find out if you may be able to handle your divorce without going to court, do not hesitate to discuss your case with the Jacksonville uncontested divorce lawyer at my firm. He is experienced in managing all facets of divorce, both in and out of the courtroom.

Understanding the Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce

As mentioned earlier, an uncontested divorce allows a former couple to end their marriage in a timely and inexpensive manner. In a traditional divorce, both parties would need to spend a substantial amount of time in court—as there are several different factors of a separation that must be resolved before the divorce can be finalized.

When undergoing an uncontested divorce, a couple has the opportunity to negotiate the terms of their separation without the added hassle of courtroom litigation. Instead, they could work with their respective lawyer to negotiate a settlement or sit down with a neutral third party and come to an agreement through mediation. In order for an uncontested divorce to be successful, however, it requires both parties to work together.

Should You Get an Uncontested Divorce in Florida?

The most important thing to understand is that an uncontested divorce should only be utilized in one of two situations: when both parties have mutually agreed to file for divorce or when one spouse has decided to file for divorce and the other has chosen not to participate.

If you are hoping to handle the dissolution of your marriage through an uncontested divorce but your ex-spouse refuses to cooperate, it simply won't be possible to manage the process outside of court. As such, this form of divorce is usually only effective when both you and your former partner want the same things—which does not necessarily mean that you must both agree on every matter of your divorce, but rather that you are both willing to compromise.
