What Is an Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce is a type of divorce where both parties agree on all the major issues that need to be resolved in order to legally dissolve the marriage. This includes things like the division of property, child custody, child support, and spousal support. When both parties can agree on these things, the divorce process is generally much faster and more straightforward.

In order to qualify for an uncontested divorce in California, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You and your spouse must both agree to get a divorce
  • Both of you must agree on all the major terms of the divorce
  • Both of you must be willing to sign divorce papers

If you and your spouse cannot agree on even one issue, you will not be able to file for an uncontested divorce. You will need to file for a contested divorce, and the court will make decisions on your behalf.

Uncontested divorces are often preferred because they are generally much faster and less expensive than contested divorces. They are also typically less stressful and more amicable, as both parties have already agreed on all the terms of the divorce.

However, it is still important to have an experienced divorce attorney on your side to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are making the right decisions for your future.

How to File for Uncontested Divorce in California

California is a no-fault divorce state, which means that you do not need to have a specific reason or grounds for getting a divorce. You simply need to state that you have “irreconcilable differences” that have caused the marriage to break down and that there is no chance of saving the marriage.

There are a few steps you will need to take in order to file for an uncontested divorce in California, including:

  • Meet the residency requirements
  • File the divorce papers
  • Serve your spouse with the divorce papers
  • Wait for your spouse to respond
  • Finalize the divorce

Each of these steps can be complex, and it is important to have an experienced divorce attorney on your side to help you navigate the process.

Benefits of Uncontested Divorce

There are many benefits to filing for an uncontested divorce in California, including:

  • Uncontested divorces are generally faster than contested divorces
  • Uncontested divorces are generally less expensive than contested divorces
  • You can keep your divorce private, as it will not be decided by a judge
  • Uncontested divorces are generally less stressful and more amicable

Uncontested Divorce vs. Contested Divorce

While uncontested divorces are generally faster and less expensive than contested divorces, they are not always the best option for every couple. There are some situations where a contested divorce may be a better option.

Some situations where you should file for a contested divorce include:

  • Your spouse is abusive
  • Your spouse is hiding assets
  • Your spouse is refusing to cooperate
  • You cannot agree on the major terms of the divorce

Even if you are filing for an uncontested divorce, you should still have an experienced divorce attorney on your side to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are making the right decisions for your future.

How Much Does an Uncontested Divorce Cost?

In general, an uncontested divorce will be much less expensive than a contested divorce. The exact cost will depend on your specific situation, as well as the complexity of your divorce. If you and your spouse are able to agree on all the major terms of your divorce, you will be able to save a significant amount of time and money on legal fees.

Some of the factors that can affect the cost of an uncontested divorce include:

  • Whether you and your spouse have children
  • Whether you and your spouse have significant assets or debts
  • Whether you and your spouse are able to agree on the major terms of your divorce
  • Whether you and your spouse are able to communicate and cooperate

At Nader & Woodcock, ALC, we understand that divorce can be expensive, which is why we offer affordable legal services to clients throughout Woodland Hills and the surrounding areas. We can help you file for an uncontested divorce and ensure that you are getting a fair settlement.

How Long Does an Uncontested Divorce Take?

While an uncontested divorce is generally much faster than a contested divorce, the exact timeline will depend on your specific situation. In California, there is a six-month waiting period for all divorces, which means that you will need to wait at least six months between the time you file for divorce and the time the divorce is finalized.

However, if you and your spouse are able to agree on all the major terms of your divorce, you may be able to finalize your divorce as soon as the six-month waiting period is over. If you and your spouse have children, you may need to wait a bit longer, as the court will want to ensure that the child custody and visitation arrangement is in the best interests of the child.

At Nader & Woodcock, ALC, we understand that you want to get through your divorce as quickly as possible, which is why we work diligently to resolve your case in a timely manner. We can help you file for an uncontested divorce and ensure that you are getting a fair settlement.
