How to ensure your divorce is uncontested

Going through a divorce is never easy, even if you knew it was coming, or you've prepared for it for years. Coming to the realization that your marriage is over can cause a lot of pain, stress, anguish and other emotions. One way to make the divorce process less stressful is to work towards an uncontested divorce with your spouse. Here are a few tips to make sure this happens when you file for divorce in Tennessee.

The best way to achieve an uncontested divorce is to have zero remaining disagreements with your spouse regarding issues from the marriage. The disagreements could involve child custody, child support, alimony and the division of property and other assets.

You will need to streamline the paperwork involved with your divorce so that there are no mistakes made or issues that could be questioned by your spouse. The paperwork should have clear explanations of why you are filing for divorce, as well as information about child custody and a list of your property.

Many uncontested divorces occur when the other spouse fails to appear if a court hearing has been scheduled. The court will then grant the uncontested divorce based on the information you provided in the divorce filing. The other way an uncontested divorce can be granted is when your spouse agrees with everything you provided in the filing and has no issues with even just one item.

Not every couple will be able to finalize their divorce without going to mediation or without appearing in court. Why? Things aren't always that simple. But, if you follow some of the tips outlined today, you very well could secure an uncontested divorce.
