Uncontested Divorce: Who gets represented?

Uncontested divorce is the way most people divorce. It's simple and inexpensive, and it offers you and your spouse the chance to end your marriage quietly and with dignity. It's not right for everybody, but it's right for many more couples than gladiators like to admit.

In recent years, the use of Vallejo divorce mediation has increased. People are realizing that they probably would be well served to not each spend over $10,000 on a divorce. That's where Vallejo divorce mediation can help. Also, courts have shown a preference for resolving disputes outside of court. Courts also prefer Vallejo divorce mediation. It's easier for them, and better for you.

At the heart of every divorce are three issues:
  1. How to divide the community property,
  2. Who will have custody of the children, and
  3. How much child and spousal support should be paid.
Uncontested divorces move much faster through the court system and are therefore less expensive. If you and your spouse can reach an agreement on these issues, then an uncontested divorce is probably your best option.

I hope your brain isn't spinning too much at this point. But here's it in a nutshell, you can:
- mediate
- have a collaborative divorce
- create a separation agreement.
- duke it our in court.

The first three options are usually the best. They are all forms of uncontested divorce.

Vallejo divorce mediation decisions are on the rise. having attorneys, judges, and parties spending a day in court is very inefficient and costly. Also, parties generally abide by Vallejo divorce mediation agreements more closely than by court decisions. Vallejo divorce mediation encourages overall harmony. I generally don't like to give advice to people I've never met, but try Vallejo divorce mediation before fighting in court. My parents started figting over their house in court. They realized that if they kept fighting, the legal fees would be almost as much as the house was worth. They switched to Vallejo divorce mediation. It worked really well. Give it a go. At the very least, fill out our contact form and talk to a Vallejo divorce mediation attorney.

Vallejo divorce mediation (an uncontested divorce) is almost always better than the alternative, trust me on this.
