What is an Uncontested Divorce?

Uncontested Divorces

Have you and your spouse decided to dissolve your marriage and have resolved all issues, including dividing the property and determining the custody arrangement? If so, you can pursue an uncontested divorce. While this is the easiest way to dissolve a marriage, it is still helpful to have an attorney look over the paperwork before submitting it to the court. Your attorney can review the settlement agreement to ensure it represents your rights and interests and meets all legal requirements.

Consult with our uncontested divorce attorneys if you would like assistance. With more than 60 years of combined experience, we can help you move through the divorce process and provide guidance if any issues arise.

What Is Included in a Divorce Settlement?

You must settle all matters related to the dissolution of your marriage before pursuing an uncontested divorce. These include:

  • Division of assets and debts
  • Alimony
  • Child support
  • Parental time-sharing
  • Parental responsibility

The Role Of An Attorney In Uncontested Divorce Proceedings

Both you and your spouse can retain legal counsel when pursuing an uncontested divorce. However, the same attorney cannot represent both of you. Instead, you will each need your own attorney if you decide to use legal counsel.

First, your attorney will review the divorce settlement to ensure it complies with the law. Second, the attorney will make sure that it is fair and protects your interests. If the divorce settlement is unfavorable, your attorney can negotiate to change the terms.

Finally, the uncontested divorce attorney can prepare the documents for you and the other party to sign. Finally, your attorney will file the paperwork with the court.

What If You Disagree Before Filing For Divorce?

In some cases, couples create a divorce settlement, only to change their minds before filing it with the court. For instance, one party might realize that the division of property favors the other person and refuses to sign until a change is made.

Our uncontested divorce attorneys are also certified mediators. Thus, if you come upon a roadblock, we can help you reach an agreement through mediation.

On the other hand, we can negotiate with the other party’s attorney if we are already representing you in the divorce. Most issues can be resolved without going to court, so reach out for assistance today.

Advantages Of An Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested divorces provide numerous advantages for couples. First, you will save time and money when you dissolve your marriage outside of court. You can also maintain your privacy by settling all matters instead of arguing your case in front of a judge. Most importantly, uncontested divorces are easier on children and the divorcing parties. You are less likely to experience stress and hostility when going through an uncontested divorce. Learn more about the advantages by speaking to an uncontested divorce attorney at our firm.

How Long Does An Uncontested Divorce Take?

At a minimum, it will take at least 20 days after your uncontested divorce attorney files the paperwork before the divorce is finalized. However, it generally takes around 30 days to become officially divorced. If you choose to file for divorce without attending a hearing, the court will mail the paperwork to you when it is complete. Then, you can keep the paperwork for your records.
