How to Get an Uncontested Divorce with Mediation

Uncontested Divorce Divorces don't always have to be messy and time-consuming. Sometimes, two people in a marriage can mutually agree that the relationship isn't working for them anymore. Even in a marriage, it's possible to realize that you've grown apart, or that you want different things. When this happens, sometimes, the best thing that everyone can do is go their separate ways. In some situations, the couples considering a divorce may have even discussed the issues that commonly arise in a divorce proceeding. In these situations, those involved generally want to avoid as much exhausting litigation and discussion as possible. For couples who are ready to cut ties and go their separate ways, divorce mediation may be the ideal solution.

In a standard New York divorce, each of the parties involved will be represented by divorce attorneys who are committed to providing for the best interests of their client. Sometimes, this appears to be the only option. However, in circumstances wherein the parties are capable of working together, divorce mediators can help the couple work through the issues that need to be decided in the hope of coming to a more mutually acceptable solution. Often, divorce mediation is much less expensive and faster than a typical divorce with a divorce attorney. It can be much faster too.

Uncontested Divorces and Mediation

Uncontested divorces are generally much faster and more convenient than other divorce proceedings. In some cases, couples believe that their divorce should be uncontested. However, as they progress through the divorce mediation process, they realize that there are issues that still need to be discussed and negotiated.

If it is impossible for these parties to come up with a mutually acceptable agreement, they can abandon the process and move into a traditional divorce instead.
