You can avoid a complex legal battle with uncontested divorce

It's never an easy decision to file for divorce. When a Tennessee couple decides to move forward with this decision, they may wish to avoid certain complications and a costly, stressful court battle. This is possible by filing for an uncontested divorce. While it is not always the best choice in every situation, this could be the right decision for your family and your unique divorce.

Uncontested divorce is an option for couples that have no remaining disagreements between them. They agree on all issues related to custody, property division and other matters, and they are ready to simply get the process over with. If you and your spouse are in accord on the details of your divorce and there is no need for litigation, uncontested divorce could be the right choice for you.

What couples can get an uncontested divorce?

Not every couple will be able to make this choice. While you may assume that you have to get along with your former spouse in order to make this choice work, that is simply not the case. You do not have to get along or even like your soon-to-be-ex-spouse to be eligible. The only requirement is that both make mutual and informed decisions related to major divorce issues.

Why this could be an attractive choice

There are many reasons why a couple would consider an uncontested divorce over another option. Some of the benefits of this choice include the following:

  • More streamlined than traditional divorce
  • Takes less time, resulting in lower costs
  • Allows couples to maintain more control over details of final divorce order
  • Could lead to more workable and sustainable divorce orders

With an uncontested divorce, you will be able to keep more details of your divorce from public access. From the savings in cost to the reduction in stress, there are many reasons why this option could benefit your family.

The ideal post-divorce future

The end of a marriage is a complex time, but litigation and costly legal battles are never your only option. Many couples are able to avoid the courtroom altogether and come to an agreement that benefits every member of the family for years to come. 

Before you make any decisions that could have an impact on your family's post-divorce future, you would be wise to seek a full understanding of your legal rights and options. If uncontested divorce is the right choice for you, you could still benefit from experienced legal guidance.
