Nixon’s Grandson Enters into Uncontested Divorce from Billionairess

The media of the 21st century seems to thrive on messy divorce stories, which is why hearing of an uncontested divorce amongst popular figures and celebrities seems so uncommon.

Late last year news broke of Andrea Catsimatidis, a billionaire supermarket heiress, filing for divorce from Richard Nixon’s grandson, Christopher Nixon Cox. Despite reputations and billions of dollars on the line, the divorce is uncontested and is likely to be resolved quickly. The couple does not have any children.

Contested Vs. Uncontested Divorce

In most states, couples choosing to divorce may choose between a contested divorce or an uncontested divorce. Contested divorces occur when a couple is unable to reach an agreement on one or more issues. As a result, additional counseling or legal intervention may be required to help handle sensitive or “hot button” topics such as:

  • Child custody and support
  • Asset distribution
  • Property division
  • Debt allocation
  • Alimony and temporary spousal support

An uncontested divorce occurs when a couple is able to agree on all issues. This does not necessarily mean that the divorce is amicable, but it does indicate that the couple has reached an agreement on all disputed items between them, and has been able to settle them outside of court.

Does an Uncontested Divorce Require Legal Counsel?

Uncontested divorces are ideal because they are quick, convenient, straightforward, and inexpensive. But this does not mean that couples should immediately enter into a divorce without legal counsel.

Dissolving a marriage is emotionally draining. The sooner the marriage is dissolved, the sooner each spouse can start to rebuild his or her life. At the law office of Fischer & Van Thiel LLP, our attorneys ensure that each uncontested divorce is resolved as quickly as possible by ensuring that the correct paperwork is prepared, understood, and submitted.

Many of our clients have also come to us for additional legal guidance. It is important that one entering a divorce fully understands his or her rights and what affect their particular divorce agreement may have on their life after the divorce. Unless fully understood, an uncontested divorce may result in significant hardships for one spouse while offering greater benefit to the other.

While it is not necessary to engage an attorney for an uncontested divorce, it is important to know your options. If you are curious about your options when entering a divorce, the attorneys at Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP are available to discuss your specific case.
