In an uncontested divorce both parties agree to the terms of the divorce, unlike contested divorces wherein the courts must resolve disputes for the divorcing parties. To pursue an uncontested divorce, both parties must agree to all terms of the divorce, such as division of assets, child custody, and support.
No, all states now recognize no-fault divorces, which does not require the divorcing parties to prove any fault in the marital breakdown. The most common no-fault divorce grounds used is "irreconcilable differences," meaning the couple does not get along and the marriage cannot be saved.
The property and assets are divided differently in each divorce case, but courts will try to find the fairest means of dividing the marital property between the divorcing parties. The fault or grounds of the divorce usually does not play a role in how the property is distributed.
Although divorce affects everyone involved, the impact of a divorce on a child could be minimal or severe. It is important to talk to your child about what is going on, ensure them they are not in any way responsible for the divorce, and reassure both parents love them just as much as ever.
If the divorcing parties are willing to settle the divorce outside of court, and if the divorcing parties can agree and negotiate on the terms of the divorce, then mediate can be a valid option. The role of a mediator is to focus the divorcing parties on what is needed to come to an agreement on the terms of the divorce. Mediation is often less expensive than an attorney; mediation can also be used with the iDivorceForms service.
The nature of the debt dictates how it is handled in the divorce, such as whether a spouse accrued the debt prior to or during the marriage, and if any assets are tied to the debt. Debt can complicate the divorce process, and it is important to divide the debt fairly and legally, so it is important to find the most effective means of dividing the debt.
Depending on your state of residence, it can take a matter of months to a year to finalize a divorce. Each state has different residency requirements, and waiting periods to observe before finalizing the divorce.
