What to Know About Uncontested Divorces During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The coronavirus has brought the world to an abrupt halt, but slowly many of us are learning to adapt to life in lockdown. And while we’ve been okay with postponing some things, like the spring break vacation we had planned for months, other things we simply cannot delay until the viral outbreak passes.

Specifically, for couples in the midst of divorce, postponing until who knows when is just not an option.

Good news.

In the state of Florida, couples pursuing an uncontested divorce – one that does not require a court hearing – may be completed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

What is an Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce is one in which both spouses agree to the divorce and in which any disagreements on divorce-related issues may be worked out through negotiation or mediation, rather than a potentially lengthy court battle.

During a time when the courts are only open for emergencies and procedural things, pursuing an uncontested divorce may be a good option for couples who are in agreement and are willing to negotiate on issues.
