Georgia couples like you may have come to the mutual decision to get a divorce, but what next? Does a court battle have to follow? At BRE Law, LLC, we are here to explain the benefits of uncontested divorce and how it can make the divorce process easier for you.
Uncontested divorce is a situation in which you and your spouse mutually agree on all important terms of the divorce itself. This includes figuring out child custody, any support payments, how you will divide your assets and debts, and so on.
The most important part about uncontested divorce is that it allows you to skip the lengthy court battle in which the court itself makes decisions for you because you and your spouse are unable to agree. It is of key importance, however, that both parties agree to every term given for the aforementioned topics. If only one spouse is satisfied with even just one category, the divorce cannot proceed as uncontested.
Naturally, this can be quite difficult for a couple to achieve alone. Many couples who strive for an uncontested divorce also use different tools to help make the process smoother. Divorce mediators, for example, can help couples reach agreements on topics they previously couldn’t find mutual ground on.
