What are the benefits of an amicable divorce?

On Behalf of | Feb 23, 2024 | Divorce |

In some cases, an amicable divorce is impossible. Perhaps one person found out that their partner was having an extramarital affair, for example. The divorce will likely be contentious. 

But in many cases, couples just decide that it’s time to be done with the relationship. There doesn’t have to be a lot of drama and they aren’t angry with one another. They may be on amicable terms, which can be very beneficial if they are co-parents. It may also lead to an uncontested divorce, which has some key benefits.

It can be faster

In an uncontested divorce, both partners will work together to make decisions and have the court sign off on them. This can be much faster than going through a series of court hearings and having the court pass down an official order.

It can be cheaper

Because it is faster, an amicable and uncontested divorce often costs less than a divorce that you have to litigate. It is still important to know about all of your legal options, but speeding up the process can reduce the financial burden.

It may be better with children

If you are co-parents and you have children together, an uncontested divorce can be best because it creates less friction in the family. After all, you will still have to see each other, communicate and cooperate after the divorce. An amicable divorce allows you to focus on your children, rather than yourselves.

Your divorce options

No matter what situation you and your spouse find yourselves in, if you’re going to get divorced, take the time to carefully look into all the proper legal steps.
