What Is an Uncontested Divorce in Missouri?

Divorce does not have to mean a court battle full of high drama and even higher legal fees. If you and your divorcing spouse are on the same page about your divorce terms – or are willing to work out mutually acceptable terms – with the skilled legal guidance of your respective experienced Missouri divorce attorneys – you can seek a much-less contentious and costly uncontested divorce.

Uncontested Divorce

Obtaining an uncontested divorce does not necessarily mean that you and your divorcing spouse see eye-to-eye on every issue that must be resolved between you but, instead, means that you and your divorcing spouse are willing to work out your differences outside of the courtroom. The terms that must be resolved to achieve an uncontested divorce include (as applicable):

  • The division of your marital property
  • Your child custody arrangements
  • Alimony (called spousal maintenance in Missouri)
  • Child support

Uncontested Divorce FAQ

What factors make an uncontested divorce less likely?

If your divorcing spouse is committed to making your divorce as difficult as possible, heading directly to court may be your best option.

Why do I need a divorce attorney?

Even though you and your soon-to-be-ex are committed to an uncontested divorce, the terms of your divorce will directly affect your parental and financial rights, and having professional legal guidance on your side helps to ensure that you will not accept terms that fail to protect these important rights (in potentially unforeseen ways).

What if we need more help finding a middle ground?

Alternative dispute resolution options, such as mediation, may help you and your divorcing spouse work out terms that work for you.
