An uncontested divorce can be the easiest and most efficient way for two people to finalize their split. An uncontested divorce can be finalized in as few as 31 days from first filing paperwork in Georgia. If you have questions about filing a divorce, Vayman & Teitelbaum can help. Their experienced family law attorneys can give you insight on what to do if you are planning a divorce.

What is an Uncontested Divorce?

When two people can simply decide on the major factors in their divorce, it is considered an uncontested divorce. The major factors can include:

  • Parenting and custody,
  • Child support payments,
  • The amount of alimony to be paid,
  • The division of assets and debt.

If both parties can decide on these elements quickly, the time and money  for an uncontested divorce can be minimal.


Perhaps the biggest advantage to an uncontested divorce is the cost. Attorney fees and court costs can be minimal when a divorce is uncontested. Since the case will not go to trial, the financial burden is lowered for both spouses.

A Private Matter

Not all divorces have the ability to be uncontested, but when they are, the chances of conflict between both parties is low. With low conflict, there is a chance that the two parties can communicate with one another. In this way, the divorce process can become more private than a contested divorce. An uncontested divorce is a quiet way to end the relationship.

Simple and Quick

According to Georgia divorce experts, an uncontested divorce can be finalized 31 days after the proper paperwork is filed. This can happen because uncontested divorces are less complicated and the court does not have to be involved. Taking away the time in court or with attorneys can help both of you get your lives back together quickly. It can also eliminate the emotional and mental strain a divorce can put on you.

When is an Uncontested Divorce a Problem?

There are times when an uncontested divorce is not the solution. Although you may want your divorce to end quickly, this is not always possible. If you have been the victim of domestic violence, there is a good chance the divorce will be a contested divorce. In marriages in which domestic violence has occurred, the two sides may not be on good speaking terms. There can also be unreasonable demands made by one of the two parties. Due to these reasons, an uncontested divorce is nearly impossible to secure in these situations.
