An uncontested simple divorce is essentially the same as an absolute divorce, completely dissolving a marriage. In an uncontested simple divorce, however, both parties reach a mutual agreement on all marital issues such as child custody, spousal or child support, division of assets and properties, etc. No issues remain unsolved or contested by either party. It is the most amicable, quickest, and least expensive type of divorce because both parties fully agree on, or have already negotiated, all terms of the separation. An uncontested simple divorce allows both spouses to remain fully in control of the end of their marriage and all decisions that will affect their futures after their divorce.
An uncontested simple divorce is not always possible, nor is it always appropriate. For example, if there is any domestic violence in a marriage, an uncontested simple divorce is not possible. It is very unlikely that an abused spouse can negotiate the terms of a divorce on his or her own. In addition, if either party refuses to speak to the other, negotiating and agreeing upon an uncontested divorce would be impossible.
Another thing to consider in an uncontested simple divorce is that the divorce lawyer handling the divorce can only represent one spouse. This means that one spouse will remain unrepresented, and even though all agreements should be mutual and amicable in an uncontested simple divorce, the unrepresented spouse may wind up being taken advantage of.
An experienced divorce lawyer can help you understand all pros and cons of an uncontested simple divorce. If you and your spouse mutually agree on all issues that may arise in dissolving the marriage and separating, an uncontested simple divorce can be the quickest and easiest solution for you. Even though a divorce lawyer can only represent one of you, he or she will do their best to make the uncontested simple divorce simple, inexpensive and quick, ensuring the negotiated wishes of both spouses are adhered to, thus making the divorce beneficial for both parties.
