There is no harm having mutual divorce, actually its save time and money both, and further more considering you have child also in that case its always good to have smooth process rather than litigation, because in litigation both the parties get involved unnecessarily in collecting the facts, witness, proves and putting base less allegations which takes lots of time and peace as well.
