What is an Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce occurs when both parties involved in the dissolution of the marriage can reach an agreement on all relevant issues, such as division of assets, child custody, child support, and spousal support. This type of divorce is typically faster, less expensive, and more amicable than a contested divorce.

Understanding the Benefits of Uncontested Divorce

When considering divorce, many couples are unaware of the benefits of choosing an uncontested divorce. This option allows both parties to work together to reach a mutually agreeable settlement without the need for a lengthy court battle. Some of the key benefits of uncontested divorce include:

  • Lower cost compared to contested divorces
  • Quicker resolution, saving time and emotional stress
  • Less conflict, fostering a more amicable relationship post-divorce
  • Greater control over the outcome, rather than leaving decisions to a judge

At Wexell Milman, our experienced attorneys specialize in guiding clients through the uncontested divorce process, providing compassionate support and legal expertise every step of the way. If you are considering divorce, we can help you understand if uncontested divorce is the right option for your situation.

Navigating the Uncontested Divorce Process

The process of an uncontested divorce can be relatively straightforward, but it's essential to have an experienced family law attorney guide you through each step.

At Wexell Milman, we will:

  • Consult with you to understand your situation and your desired outcomes
  • Draft and review all the necessary divorce paperwork to ensure accuracy and legality
  • File the necessary documents with the appropriate court
  • Negotiate with your spouse or their attorney to reach an agreement on all issues
  • Review the agreement to ensure it's fair and in your best interests
  • Present the agreement to the court for approval

Even in an uncontested divorce, complications and disputes can arise. We're prepared to handle these issues quickly and effectively, ensuring the process continues smoothly.

Do I Have to go to Court for Uncontested Divorce?

In Virginia, you may not always have to go to court for an uncontested divorce. If there is a complete agreement between spouses, Virginia law provides a simplified procedure known as a "Divorce by Affidavit" or "Divorce by Agreement."

In this process, the spouse seeking the divorce, known as the "plaintiff," can file a divorce complaint and an affidavit confirming that the couple meets the legal requirements for an uncontested divorce. The affidavit will detail their mutual agreement on all relevant issues. After filing the paperwork, the court will review the documents, and if everything is in order and meets the legal criteria, they may grant the divorce without requiring a court hearing.

However, there are instances where a brief court hearing may still be necessary, such as when child custody is involved. The court may request a hearing to ensure that the custody arrangement is in the child's best interest.

Consulting with an experienced Fairfax uncontested divorce attorney from Wexell Milman is highly recommended. We can guide you through the process, ensuring you meet all legal requirements and properly complete the necessary paperwork for an uncontested divorce in Virginia.
