Many divorce cases involve lengthy battles over custody, support, and other terms of separation. You can bypass much of this difficult process by reaching a mutually beneficial agreement in an uncontested divorce. Our legal team at Law Offices of Randy W. Medina, APLC has handled divorce cases for more than 22 years, and features a Bar-Certified Family Law Specialist. Los Angeles Divorce Attorney Randy W. Medina can help you decide if an uncontested divorce is right for your situation, and guide you to the favorable resolution you deserve.
How to reach an uncontested divorce
In order for your divorce to be uncontested, both spouses must agree on all or most issues in a divorce. This can be achieved in one of two ways: 1) If no response is filed to the initial request for divorce, a default can be taken and agreement reached in this fashion; or 2) both parties can agree on all issues which will result in a stipulated judgment. In my practice, upwards of 80% of the cases I am involved in are resolved by agreement without the need for trial. Because the terms and provisions of an agreement may be difficult to change, it is important to carefully review the terms of your divorce before signing off on an uncontested dissolution of your marriage or partnership.
Consider the following aspects of your divorce:
- Property division
- Debt division and payment
- Child custody and support
- Spousal support
If you cannot agree on any of these issues, they will have to be resolved in court in a contested divorce trial. While this process may be more difficult in some regards, some cases may benefit from being resolved by trial. If necessary, a contested divorce may allow you to reach favorable terms of agreement that could not be negotiated before trial. In any case, Mr. Medina can help guide you through the divorce process to the maximum benefit.
