An uncontested divorce occurs when you and your spouse are amicable and agreeable on most aspects of your divorce settlement. While it may not be possible to agree on everything, if both parties come to the table willing to cooperates and work together to achieve a peaceful settlement, you may be able to save copious amounts of time and money by avoiding going to divorce court. However, no matter how amicable you and your spouse are, it is essential that you seek legal representation from an experienced Covina divorce lawyer during the mediation process. An attorney will help ensure that all of your marital properties and assets are accounted for during the process, and help you achieve a settlement that is agreeable to you.
An uncontested divorce can help you save time and money, and can even prevent you from getting into arguments with your spouse over property and assets. If you decide to go through mediation with a third-party mediator helping you to reach agreements, it is still vital for you each to have legal representation. Whatever agreements you and your spouse mutually come to, nothing is legalized until your settlement in ratified by the court. Only then is your marriage officially dissolved. Even when you and your spouse are working together toward the same goal, the process can be confusing and fraught with complications. Your attorney will be able to help you sort through these complexities and come out the other side.
