Uncontested divorce in Delaware

Divorcing couples have two options in the state of Delaware:

  • Contested dissolution. This type of legal breakup presupposes couples having irresolvable disputes concerning important divorce matters. Contested cases are complicated and, therefore, require hearings to be held and spouses to appear on them with their attorneys. Such dissolutions are exhausting, expensive, and extremely time-consuming. Additionally, a contested divorce is not possible online or without a hearing.
  • Uncontested divorce. An uncontested dissolution means that the couple has resolved any issues regarding division of property, alimony and child custody, expenses for a child’s education and healthcare services, and spousal support. This kind of divorce is much cheaper, faster, and smoother, which makes it a really desirable option for couples in Delaware.

However, even if you choose the second option, you still can’t avoid the long and challenging process of dealing with legal forms. There are a lot of divorce forms in Delaware, and it’s quite difficult to find out which ones are needed for your specific case on your own. If you try looking for them online, the paperwork you find will likely be rejected by the court due to errors or not being up-to-date. In order to ensure you file successfully on the very first try, use OnlineDivorcer.

Getting a divorce in Delaware with a child

Child custody and support are important matters that spouses with kids need to reach agreement on before the divorce can be finalized.

  • As long as parents are on the same page on what’s best for their kids and make a clear parenting plan, a judge is likely to approve it unless something does not seem to be in children’s best interests.
  • In Delaware, if one parent gets sole custody, the other gets visitation rights. Apart from that, a non-custodial parent will have to pay child support to a custodial parent.
  • A court will set a visitation plan, which is called a “contact schedule,” if parents cannot agree on it. A judge will take into consideration the working hours of each parent as well as the child’s school and other activities timetable to develop a schedule.
  • Under Delaware law, even if one parent has sole legal custody of a child, each parent has the right to receive all the information concerning the child’s progress in school, medical treatment, school activities, events, etc.
  • Parents in Delaware must attend a Parent Education Class before the divorce can be finalized. The dissolution cannot be issued until spouses submit the certificate proving that they have attended the class to the court.
  • If the child is older than 10, his or her preferences will be taken into account while granting custody.
