$695 Divorce Attorney – 800.369.4532 – An uncontested divorce is a divorce where the parties agree to the terms of the judgment even before the divorce paperwork is filed. The advantage is that the parties can avoid litigation; neither party ever appears in court, and because there is no litigation, the cost is substantially less. The disadvantage is that it requires each party to compromise. In order to obtain a settlement, each party must be flexible and make realistic demands from the other party.
