Uncontested Divorce in Long Island
The best types of divorce cases are the ones in which the parties are able to get along favorably in order to amicably reach mutual decisions regarding the dissolution of their marriage. These types of divorce cases are referred to as uncontested divorce cases. There are two ways in which to pursue an uncontested divorce:
divorce mediation and collaborative law. Through mediation, a neutral third-party mediator will guide you and your spouse to an amicable divorce agreement. Collaborative law is similar, but instead of having a mediator, each party has their own private counsel to advise them in the process of drafting an agreement.
Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce
If you are filing for divorce, it's best if you can put aside your differences and work with your spouse to reach decisions regarding alimony,
visitation, and other marital issues. There are many benefits to an uncontested divorce. First and foremost, you will save a considerable amount of money in the long run.
Contested divorce cases are often very expensive since angry spouses can spend months arguing over the smallest things. The more quickly you are able to settle the terms of your divorce, the less money it will ultimately cost you in the end.
In addition to saving money, people involved in an uncontested divorce are not subjected to the headache, hassle, stress, and overall anxiety associated with most contested divorce cases. Constant fighting, placing of blame, snide remarks, and undermining are all common things in a contested divorce — is not good for your physical or mental health and could eventually lead to some kind of breakdown.
