Many Pros, Few Cons With An Uncontested, No-Fault Divorce
Posted in Divorce on October 12, 2016
There are many benefits to seeking an uncontested divorce.
We’ve all heard that half of all marriages end in divorce. This statistic is fairly accurate, and while the divorce rate does vary from year-to-year, roughly 50 percent of all married couples do end up splitting. That number is even higher for subsequent marriages, with as many as 75 percent of those couples divorcing. In spite of the high number of divorces, not all of them end up in protracted litigation; thankfully, cutthroat divorce cases that drag on for years, require multiple hearings and need a family court judge to decide all contested matters are relatively rare.
That being said, it is important to remember that you have options when it comes to ending your marriage. You could refuse to cooperate and end up costing yourself both time and money in the process, or you could just as easily choose a simple, uncontested, no-fault divorce that is quick and inexpensive. The choice is yours, but there are many obvious benefits to opting for an uncontested divorce.
Much Less Expensive Than “Traditional” Divorce
A simple, uncontested, no-fault divorce like that offered by the Pittsburgh-based office of Davis Divorce Law gives you many benefits over a traditional divorce, but the one that most people key in on is the fact that it’s much less expensive. A simple, uncontested, no-fault divorce utilizes an attorney’s services only to draft and file necessary paperwork, so there aren’t billable hours racking up right and left, there are no law office appointments, and there are no court hearings to attend (where you must take time off from work, drive to the courthouse, wait around for your case to be called, etc.).
In addition to fewer upfront attorney costs, opting for a simple, uncontested, no-fault divorce also saves you on the cost of experts commonly consulted in contested cases. These may include parenting coaches, financial planners, therapists/mental health professionals and others. When you aren’t arguing about things, you won’t need the support of expert “hired guns” trying to help prove your point.
Quicker End Result
Not only is simple, uncontested, no-fault divorce much less expensive and generally less traumatic for all parties involved (because it is less contentious, it tends to foster mutual respect instead of anger), it is also typically faster. When you aren’t fighting back and forth about everything from who gets to keep the marital home to who gets custody of the family pet, you can get things wrapped up quicker. This means that you will be able to move on with your life and start fresh faster than would have otherwise been possible. If you and your spouse have children, you will be able to start co-parenting after the divorce without the specter of undecided issues lurking around you. In fact, in Pennsylvania, children need not be mentioned in the divorce at all.
