The outcome of a divorce can have a significant impact on your parental and financial rights. With so much at stake, it is critical that you retain highly qualified legal counsel.
More and more couples turn toward uncontested divorce to avoid the emotional and financial toll that a contested divorce can present. An uncontested divorce is when couples agree on all of the terms of the divorce agreement. Many couples are able to have an uncontested divorce through through mediation or the collaborative process.
If you believe your case may be uncontested, it is important to understand your rights, options and the best possible steps to reach your goal.
In Oklahoma, mediation is mandatory prior to going to court for a divorce. Whenever possible, uncontested divorce is preferable to contested divorce; it can preserve finances and emotional well-being when families transition to a next stage in life.
In some cases, a contested divorce is inevitable; when one spouse is unable or unwilling to negotiate reasonably in the best interests of the family, addressing the issues in court is the only way forward.
If you are facing contested divorce issues, it is important to partner with a legal team that is unafraid to go to court and advocate in your best interest to get your case settled in as fair and efficient a manner as possible.
