Uncontested Divorce Looking After Your Best Interests

Uncontested Divorce Attorneys in Omaha

Put Our Experience to Work for You

An uncontested divorce is a dissolution of marriage in which both husband and wife are in complete agreement on all relevant issues. This includes dividing property and debts, awarding alimony (if any), and if children are involved, resolving custody and child support. An uncontested divorce may also be referred to as non-contested divorce, agreed upon divorce, friendly divorce, or cooperative divorce.

If you think an uncontested divorce may be right for your situation, contact Hathaway Law Group, P.C. L.L.O. Our Omaha uncontested divorce lawyers can help you understand your rights and walk you through the process of dissolving your marriage without litigation. We can also ensure that you avoid common mistakes that many people make when preparing and submitting the paperwork for an uncontested divorce.

The Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce is generally much easier and quicker than other forms of dissolution of marriage. In addition, this type of divorce may be more affordable than other types of divorce. An uncontested divorce can move quite smoothly because you and your spouse have worked out all (or most of) the terms necessary for your negotiated agreement. Therefore, your attorney can simply focus on preparing the pleadings that are required for filing a divorce case and the documents necessary to accurately reflect your agreement.

While a traditional divorce typically takes 9 months to a year to complete (with some lasting much longer than that), an uncontested divorce can easily be completed in a few months.

Is Uncontested Divorce Right for Me?

Hearing about the benefits of an uncontested divorce makes people eager to choose that option. However, this type of divorce is not a fit for everyone. Some people may require a contested divorce on some or all of their issues. How can you determine which path is right for you?

There are several signs that uncontested divorce may be the right option for your situation, including:

  • You and your spouse agree that divorce is the best option for you
  • You and your spouse are able to communicate openly with one another
  • You and your spouse are willing to compromise on some issues
  • You and your spouse can agree on a date for filing the divorce documents
  • You and your spouse agree on how your assets should be divided
  • You and your spouse agree on how to divide your debts
  • You and your spouse agree on terms for alimony
  • You and your spouse agree on child custody and child support issues

Even if the above factors are true, uncontested divorce may not be advisable for your situation if there has been any recent history of domestic violence, alcohol abuse, or substance addiction during your marriage. Also, if your spouse tries to intimidate you to get what they want, litigation may be a more appropriate option.
