A divorce can be a stressful experience. From my 12 years of experience as a lawyer handling divorce matters, I have seen this stress further aggravated by long-running and fiercely contested divorces, and its associated legal costs.
Contested divorces happen when parties disagree on the terms of a divorce and take the matter to court. Where possible, I always advise my clients to opt for a Simplified Uncontested Divorce (SUD). Such divorces happen when both parties have agreed to all the terms of the divorce. The advantages are obvious: the divorce can be completed much faster and is less costly.
If you are already contemplating a divorce, I have prepared this article in the hopes of making it easier for you to obtain an SUD.
