Statistically, very few divorces are actually mutual divorces. However, even when one spouse would prefer to work towards reconciliation while the other seeks a divorce, the divorce can still be uncontested.
An uncontested divorce is one in which the parties have no disagreements about the major issues involved in dissolving a marriage, such as:
- Division of shared property
- Child custody and timesharing
- Child support
DivorceNM.com provides the resources you need to complete an uncontested divorce without a lawyer.
Why Consider a Pro Se Uncontested Divorce
There are many benefits to a pro se uncontested divorce, primarily lower cost.
With DivorceNM.com’s online platform, you can generate the same legal documents required to apply for a divorce and complete the process with little to no assistance from a trained legal professional. New Mexico residents have the same access to the Family Courts’ e-filing systems that attorneys do. So, there is no reason to accrue hours’ worth of attorney’s fees.
Another notable benefit of a pro se uncontested divorce is reduced tension. Sometimes the presence of attorneys can heighten emotions and invite hostility between parties. When parties who have no major conflicts with the separation or terms of the divorce are able to continue to work directly with each other, they can work through the process faster and stay in control of their family’s future.
