Is an uncontested divorce the best option for your situation?

There is no such thing as an easy divorce, but there are things that you can do to make this process easier on yourself and other members of your family. In some cases, Tennessee couples may find that they are able to file for an uncontested divorce, which can involve much less stress and complication than a contested and contentious divorce. 

An uncontested divorce is not the best choice for everyone, but you would be wise to consider the benefits of this option before you move forward with your divorce process. If you and your spouse remain in agreement about all major divorce issues, you may be able to select this option.

Should you wait until the kids are older to divorce?

Deciding the best time to end an unhappy marriage often requires a lot of thought. As a Tennessee parent, you may feel particularly concerned about how your children may fare during your divorce. Therefore, you and your spouse may consider putting the divorce off until the children reach an older age or maybe choose to move forward with legal proceedings while they remain young as a rip-off-the-Band-Aid type approach.

Of course, no set perfect timing exists for such a situation, and because of that, you certainly want to consider various aspects of your life and your children's lives before deciding when to go through with divorce. In doing so, you may find yourself interested in how age could affect children's views on the circumstances.
