Uncontested divorce offers many advantages

If getting a divorce is inevitable in Texas, the best situation is for both parties to be on the same page about the need for divorce. It can also be helpful if the two spouses are generally in agreement on how to handle potentially contentious matters such as asset distribution, child support, child custody and spousal support. In this scenario, it is possible to file for an uncontested divorce.

An uncontested divorce involves streamlined court procedures, which thus saves money and time. Another major advantage of uncontested divorces is that these types of proceedings can help to foster less conflict between the two parties getting divorced because they offer fewer chances for conflict to erupt. The two parties do not have to make as many demands for information from each other, and fewer proceedings are needed to resolve disputes.

In addition, information that is part of a divorce proceeding is generally open to the public, or made a part of the public record. However, in uncontested divorces, less information is filed with the court. This means less private information has to be made public, which is especially valuable for those who are public figures.

Every divorce proceeding features some amount of conflict in it. However, the more that the two parties can strive to find common ground, the easier the process will be. Whether a divorce proceeding ends up being quick to complete or a drawn-out battle, an attorney in Texas can help with navigating it and pursuing a fair and personally satisfactory outcome.
