The most obvious benefits of a divorce that is not contested by either spouse are the money you save,and the short time it takes to obtain the divorce. However, there are other benefits when you avoid litigating your divorce proceeding.
For example, if you have children, a litigated divorce proceeding can be very difficult for them. When parents are arguing about every issue in the divorce, children sense the tensioneven when parents attempt to shelter the children from the antagonism between the parties. However, if parents can agree to all terms of the divorce, children do not witness their parents tear each other apart during contested litigation. Children usually benefit when parents can agree on the terms of the parenting plan. In many cases, the parents also benefit because they negotiate a parenting plan that works best for their family, which increases the success of future co-parenting.
Another benefit of an uncontested divorce is avoiding the blame game and the payback competition. While it is easy to blame the other spouse for all the problems in the marriage, very few spouses are completely innocent in the declineof the relationship. Therefore, working together to negotiate an uncontested divorce can avoid the mean-spirited and angry allegations often present in contested divorce proceedings.
In addition, when the parties do not try to attack each other to maneuver for a better position in the divorce proceedings, it is less likely that either spouse will feel the need to “pay back” the other spouse for things that were said or done during the divorce proceedings.
