Uncontested Divorce In Santa Clarita
The definition of an uncontested divorce is when both parties are in agreement to the terms of the divorce and have been able to come to those terms without the need for a trial and without the need for the judge to make orders. A divorce case can be considered uncontested in three ways.
- Your spouse did not file a response and you do not have an agreement. This is referred to as a true default case.
- Your spouse did not file a response and you have an agreement. This is referred to as a hybrid judgement.
- Your spouse did file a Response and you have an agreement. This is referred to as an uncontested judgment.
If your divorce case proceeded by any of the above means, your divorce case is considered to be uncontested. An uncontested divorce case does not mean that you will not have some disagreements with your spouse. It just means that at the end of the day you were able to come to an agreement outside of court. It is best that you spend as much time at the kitchen table trying to hash out whatever remaining issues you have before throwing in the towel and allowing a judge to make a decision on the matter. It will probably feel like you are giving more than you are getting when trying to get through the issues related to your divorce. Any time spent trying to figure things out on your own will be time well spent because the only other way to settle it is to have a judge make decisions about your family.
