Uncontested Divorce Cases in Maine

As no two families are the same, no two divorces are the same. The issues that must be settled will vary, as well as how a couple will choose to settle them. For some couples, dividing up property and determining a custody arrangement is relatively easy. Many more will not agree on how they want to handle the crucial elements in a divorce, some to the point where they cannot even attempt to compromise or even hire a mediator. Instead, they will let a judge decide what is known as a contested divorce. On the opposite end of the spectrum is an uncontested divorce. An attorney from the esteemed Maine Divorce Group can help you as you journey through to the next phase of your life.

Are You Eligible for an Uncontested Divorce?

Couples who do not have lingering disagreements about the basic elements of divorce, such as spousal support, property division, child support, and spousal maintenance, might be eligible for an uncontested divorce case. If there are still issues that need to be worked out or you and your spouse simply do not agree on these significant factors, you will either need to file a contested divorce or attempt mediation or have your Maine family law attorney work out a settlement on your behalf. If the mediation or a settlement is successful, you can still have an uncontested divorce. Whatever you and your spouse decide on, the court will need to sign off in order to issue your final divorce decree. 

Uncontested Divorce Benefits

There are multiple benefits to executing an uncontested divorce. Many couples turn to this option because it is more cost-effective than a contested divorce. However, you should never forgo the representation of an experienced divorce attorney. An uncontested divorce tends to move the divorce process along faster than its counterpart. Uncontested divorces require fewer proceedings and court supervision.

Furthermore, an uncontested divorce can help couples work out their future disagreements.  Since most divorce cases are a matter of public record, going through an uncontested divorce offers more privacy to both spouses. Otherwise, there may be public information about your finances and other personal details of your lives. 

Disadvantages of an Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested divorces are not for everyone. If you and your spouse have strong disagreements related to the essential factors in a divorce, an uncontested divorce might not be the best option for your situation. If there are minor children involved in your divorce, you may need to take additional legal steps, even in an uncontested divorce. When you speak with a seasoned Maine family law attorney, they can help you determine if the disadvantages of an uncontested divorce outweigh the benefits in your circumstances.
