Have you been handed divorce papers unexpectedly? Are you thinking you would be happier if you were no longer married? No matter who initiates a divorce, it remains a potentially-complicated process if you do not know what to expect.
In the average divorce, you will need to consider:
- Child Custody

Will Your Divorce Be Contested or Uncontested?
Movies, television, and other forms of media tend to depict divorces as heated legal fights that pit one spouse against the other. This may be stereotypical of a contested divorce but it is not necessarily common. Many divorcing spouses manage to keep things civil and sidestep unnecessary conflict. In other cases, both spouses can agree on all aspects of their divorce, creating what is known as an uncontested divorce.
Benefits you can enjoy if your divorce is uncontested include:
- Save time: An uncontested divorce can sometimes close in a matter of a few months due to the fact that neither spouse is challenging every move of the other. A contested divorce could take many months or years to conclude.
- Spend less: Court costs and attorney fees are generally lower in uncontested divorces – compared to contested divorces – since less trips to the court or an attorney's office are necessary. More money in your coffers is something both you and your spouse can appreciate.
- Feel better: Less contests means less fighting means less negative energy. When an uncontested divorce resolves, both spouses and any children they share feel better and tend to have higher hopes for the future.
