Ending a marriage is never a simple or easy decision. Tensions are often high between couples, and a power struggle over property, money, or kids could make matters worse. If you and your spouse can compromise and agree on terms before filing for divorce, it can help take some of the tension and frustration from the process.
In an uncontested divorce, both parties agree on the division of property, alimony, and child custody and support — without going to court. You do not have to be on amicable terms with your spouse for the divorce to be uncontested, you only need to be in agreement on the marriage settlement terms. Hiring an uncontested divorce attorney will ensure the separation agreement is fair, with no hidden surprises.
An attorney will also help you navigate the rules and regulations surrounding divorce in Kentucky. Every state has different requirements regarding lengths of state residency and separation periods. Since Kentucky is a no-fault state, the only legal ground for divorce is that a marriage is irreparably broken.

An uncontested divorce is a great option if both parties can agree on key issues (such as child custody and property division) in the divorce. This option allows both parties to separate without going through the hassle of a trial.
If you're seeking to end your marriage quietly and with dignity, an uncontested divorce could be your best option. If the conflict between both parties is minimal, an uncontested divorce can prevent tensions from increasing and damaging the relationship. An uncontested divorce is a private and cooperative way of separating, and both parties are more likely to keep assets in each of their pockets.
With lawyers' fees piling up, divorce can get pricey. One obvious benefit of an uncontested divorce is the financial aspect. Staying out of court is almost always the least expensive way to get a divorce.
