An uncontested divorce is when there is no opposition to what is requested in the complaint in which both parties agree to get divorced. In addition, agreeing to settle all issues including child custody, debt division and alimony.
This is a form of dispute resolution, which is similar to mediation. Collaborative divorce happens when each party hires and lawyer in an attempt to reach a settlement agreement. This process can save costs if an agreement is reached and if not, it may increase the cost of the divorce.
A straightforward and simple divorce usually takes six to eight months, if both parties deal with the papers promptly. However, negotiations over financial agreements may take a lot longer than this. But it is sometimes possible to get divorced before an agreement has been finalised.
Verbal agreements are as binding as a written agreement, but if your tenant is insisting on having an agreement in writing, you are required to comply with it. It is a better option to have an agreement in writing in order to set out terms and conditions that must be agreed upon. A lease agreement in writing will also prevent any disputes when it is your word against your tenants.
