Divorce proceedings do not always have to cost an arm and a leg and take years to conclude. Parties often have the ability to proceed with a Divorce uncontested. Time and money is only two of the advantages that come with an uncontested divorce. It also ensures that animosity between the parties remain minimal which is a great advantage in the event of minor children being involved.

When the Parties are not able to resolve or settle the above the Divorce becomes contested and will in all likelihood become acrimonious, except if the Parties agree to mediate the disputes. Without successful mediation it is then left to the court to decide how to deal with same.

When the decision is made that the marriage is irreparable but it is clear that the issues in dispute renders an uncontested divorce unlikely, consider divorce mediation. At AH Stander Attorneys we have the necessary skills to facilitate mediation between the parties, resolve the issues in dispute and proceed on an uncontested basis. Although mediation is slightly more costly than an ordinary uncontested divorce it is remarkably less costly than litigation.
