Uncontested Divorce California
An uncontested divorce is one where both parties agree on the terms of the divorce. This includes how:
◘ you will divide the marital home,
◘ you will sort the debts/credits and monies from the marriage,
◘ the children will spend their time in the two households,
◘ much the spouse will pay for child and spousal support,
◘ and other details regarding the divorce.
An uncontested divorce is usually less stressful and usually costs less money because both husband and wife agree to work together to divorce amicably. This willingness to compromise and negotiate will allow the couple to separate without a full-blown court battle which is expensive. Not only is a difficult divorce expensive, it is also emotionally draining.
Although both parties agree to a divorce without appearing in court, there are still rules that you need to follow and there are forms you need to complete and file. A marriage is a legally binding contract. In order for a divorce to be valid, you do need the court to formally dismiss the union. One rule, for example, is that even though you both agree to get a divorce, you’re not legally divorced until the judge says so. This means neither one can re-marry until the current marriage is formally dissolved.
