When a family law case is uncontested or parties agree to mediation, the results can be a much more amicable process and also a more timely legal process. However, just because everyone seems to be on the same page and the process is uncontested doesn’t mean either party should go into the process without skilled, knowledgeable, and dedicated legal support and representation. The divorce attorneys at The Law Office of Mike Demers, PLLC, can help move an uncontested case and mediation along while looking out for your rights and best interests.
Contested vs Uncontested
A contested divorce is a more complicated process as the couples involved do not agree on many of the issues at hand. Uncontested is a more amicable approach as couples are more agreeable to resolving their disputes if any. When the case pertains to divorce, mediation is the first required step before going to court, even if the divorce is uncontested. Mediation is an essential way for both parties to reach an agreement about vital parts of the divorce or other family law issues. When an agreement is reached, the process can move forward. With an uncontested divorce, a couple may have to mediate and decide issues related to division of property, child custody, child support, alimony, and other major issues. Other issues that neither party foresaw may also come about and need to be discussed or worked out through mediation.
