When a couple decides to get a divorce, they may want to work to reach an agreement outside of court. In Florida, this is known as an uncontested divorce.

Defining Uncontested Divorce
Legally, an uncontested divorce is defined as a dissolution of marriage in which both parties agree to the divorce and have settled all issues between them. This means that they have gone through the necessary discussions regarding custody, property division, and financial support and consent to a proposed agreement. The couple may reach this agreement via mediation or collaboration between attorneys.
Reasons For Uncontested Divorce
There are many reasons why couples choose uncontested divorces. The main reason is that it is usually faster and cheaper than going to court. It can also be less stressful for everyone involved since there is no need to go through a trial. Lastly, uncontested divorces often allow couples to remain on good terms after their separation, which can be beneficial if they have children.
Is An Attorney Necessary?
While it is not required, it is still recommended that each party has an attorney to help them understand the uncontested divorce process and to ensure that their rights are protected. The attorneys can also help draft the necessary documents and file them with the court.
