Guidance From Denver Attorneys In Uncontested or Amicable Divorce

A divorce is considered to be uncontested or amicable when the spouses can come to a fair and equitable agreement on all matters including the division of assets and debts, child custody, parenting time, child support and spousal support. Some couples will file their Petition for Dissolution of Marriage or their Petition for Legal Separation as Co-Petitioners rather than start out in an adverse position. When children are involved, the uncontested divorce is generally more favorable for their sense of security in an otherwise frightening world with the split of their immediate family.

In an uncontested divorce, couples are generally amicable with each other, understand that a divorce or legal separation is best and will strive to make certain that they treat each other with respect and honesty. Important decisions regarding the dissolution of the marriage are made outside of the courtroom by the divorcing couple with the guidance of their individual lawyers instead of a judge who knows nothing about the dynamics of the family.

Typically, each party retains their own attorney and works out settlement of all issues through the mediation process. Having their attorney present at mediation to assist each party gives assurances that the agreement they are entering into is a fair one for the family and one that the court will approve.

An uncontested divorce is far less costly and can be completed much quicker than a contested divorce. In Colorado, an uncontested divorce between co-petitioners can be completed as quickly as 91 days from the date of filing the petition.
