What is an Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce means that both parties have agreed on every aspect relating to their case. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:

An uncontested divorce in southern Minnesota will typically be resolved much faster and cost much less than a divorce that is marked by disagreements of the issues mentioned above.

Uncontested Divorce Legal Process

Because an uncontested divorce is defined by an agreement on all issues related to the separation, the process is not going to be nearly as extensive as a contested divorce. An attorney will still be beneficial for uncontested divorce cases. A skilled Minnesota family law attorney will:

  • Understand the paperwork and legal knowledge involved in the divorce process. They will know what information must be included, when to file proper paperwork, as well as other logistical issues involved in the case.
  • An attorney will also be beneficial because they will thoroughly understand common issues related to a divorce case. This can include some things that are completely overlooked by both parties, such as penalties for early retirement account withdrawals. In these cases, an attorney will be able to assist in drafting a Qualified Domestic Relations Order that will help both parties avoid severe tax penalties.
  • An attorney will also know what is reasonable and what is not reasonable concerning a divorce settlement. In an uncontested divorce, one party may still unknowingly forgo certain rights concerning issues such as child custody and asset division. By consulting with an attorney, you can ensure that all provisions of your uncontested divorce are fair and that your rights are upheld.
