An uncontested divorce is the goal of every couple going through a divorce in Kentucky. Why? This divorce is the easier of the two because you can avoid going to court, unlike a contested divorce. Let’s take a look at how you can secure an uncontested divorce in today’s post so you can make sure your divorce goes as smoothly as possible.
The first step towards an uncontested divorce is to have a conversation with your spouse about your expectations after filing. Try to get on the same page as your spouse when it comes to dividing assets, property and when deciding on other important items.
The most common areas of a divorce that often lead to it being contested include alimony payments, child support, child custody and how the marital home will be handled. If you are able to agree on all of these areas, your divorce should be uncontested in Kentucky.
You can also have an uncontested divorce by getting your wishes and the wishes of your spouse in writing. If the two of you meet prior to negotiations and agree on certain issues, write it down and have both of you initial or sign the paper on which it is written. You will then be able to hold each other accountable should either one of you refuse to agree to what is written.
The ability to secure an uncontested divorce will make the entire process much easier for you, the other spouse and your children. A divorce attorney will be able to help you secure this type of divorce so that you don’t have to be dragged through the mud by your spouse as you fight over assets and property.
