Things to Consider When Getting a Divorce in Tulsa
In the event of a collapse of a marriage and a separation becomes inevitable, undergoing a prolonged and agonizing divorce process may not be in the interest of the family members. In such circumstances, an uncontested divorce is an ideal way to save the family from pain and costs of a lengthy legal battle. For purposes of education, this article focuses on discussing the benefits of an uncontested divorce vs. battling with lawyers. Keep reading on to make an informed decision, whether or not it is worth contesting a divorce in court.
What is an uncontested divorce in Tulsa?
An uncontested divorce in Tulsa Oklahoma is an agreement between both spouses to break up without undergoing a long legal battle in court. The reasons for divorce may vary from one state to another, but common grounds for uncontested divorce in Oklahoma usually fall under irreconcilable incompatibility. If the parties cannot agree on an uncontested divorce, the parties can still utilize Express Documents and Mediation of Tulsa to mediate any outstanding disputes or disagreements.
How it works
In most cases, an uncontested divorce agreement often includes issues such as the following.
v Child support, custody, and visitation, where they are relevant
v Division of marital property and assets, where applicable
v Spousal support, including amount, terms as well as duration, if applicable. (note: Express Documents and Mediation, Inc. only includes alimony or spousal support if both parties agree to alimony or spousal support)
In many circumstances, the court will only grant an uncontested divorce if the disputing spouses have agreed to all conditions surrounding the divorce. The parties must agree on a division of marital property, such as a house, cars, and personal property. If children are born of the marriage, the parties must agree to custody, visitation and child support. Whenever a disagreement is not settled, divorce mediation can save the situation from becoming an $8,000.00 divorce in Tulsa!
Normally, when seeking an uncontested divorce, both parties must have settled all disputes before filing the divorce. Hiring an experienced divorce mediator will also help the couple to navigate the intricate details which may not be agreed upon and even negotiate the terms of the agreement, thus protecting the parties from financial peril as a result of litigation.
Advantages of Uncontested Divorce
The benefits of an uncontested divorce for the client and the immediate family are many, including offering an instant, less damaging legal process that also protects the privacy of the client to a greater extent, unlike battling with lawyers in court for several years.
Easier and speedy Resolution
Most importantly, an uncontested separation is simpler to resolve, in contrast to a contested divorce. With an uncontested divorce, it usually takes ten days to obtain a divorce in Tulsa with no children. On the other hand, if the parties fight over key issues such as sharing of matrimonial property, child support and access, anxiety will build causing the former partners to derail and counteract each other, dragging the case for several years in court. Thus, an uncontested divorce can quickly resolve these disagreements.
When going through a contested divorce, the tendency to become uncivil by either party tends to be higher unlike when solving the case through an uncontested or mediated divorce where a tolerable amount of sobriety and civility may prevail right through the process. The heated conflict that is common in contested divorce often makes it hard to resolve the issues amicably.
Costs of Divorce in Tulsa
While the expenses of hiring a legal counsel for a contested divorce may vary from one legal counsel to another, the costs of an uncontested divorce in Tulsa are often less in the long run, particularly when both parties are civil, sharing information and documents freely while negotiating a joint agreement. This occurrence means that the spouses can save more money for taking care of other family expenses down the road.
Improved Privacy Control
Choosing an uncontested approach to resolving a separation can also provide better privacy control to both spouses. This incident is because the terms of an uncontested divorce in Tulsa are debated in private while in a contested separation each side`s counsel make their submissions in public, and they become public hearings. By the time a client who has worked with Express Documents and Mediation of Tulsa reaches the courthouse, they have already settled all disputes in the case.
Benefits to the immediate family
There are also many advantages to the immediate family if both parties resolve the separation in an uncontested approach. More specifically, the kids will reap emotionally and financially if the both spouses put their personal egos aside and put the children` interests ahead of everything else. In fact, the effect of the divorce will be less harmful to the kids in an uncontested separation, as compared to a contested one.
Sometimes, a contested divorce may force other family members to make unwise decisions, for instance, to take sides’ in a divorce case. In addition to that, immediate colleagues and friends may be required to file affidavits to show testimony or evidence in court during a contested divorce. Such excessive pressure may affect the relationship between the family members. Hence, it is healthier for the children and even the extended family when both spouses can establish a clash-proof environment via an uncontested divorce instead of picking a contestable style. When settling a divorce case, the conventional wisdom is to consider an arrangement of a quicker, less hurting, as well as a cost-effective and more private manner that upholds the emotional well-being of the kids and the family members while also protecting their rights and welfare.
