Stress Free and Affordable, Uncontested Divorce Attorney Services
Even the word “divorce” elicits the deluge of emotions, tough times brought on by the end of a marriage. It also means distressing thoughts of the potential costs involved, confusion regarding the process, the time it’s going to take to complete a divorce ‑ basically the fear of the unknown. Most people facing divorce feel like their lives are going to be put on hold while their case slowly makes its way through the court system and their divorce attorneys accumulate sizable fees. That isn’t the case with an uncontested divorce attorney.
What is an Uncontested Divorce?
In an uncontested divorce, the parties are in agreement about how to allocate debts, divide up the marital property, make custody arrangement for minor children, and set spousal and/or child support in advance. It’s an inexpensive and straightforward process that gives you and your spouse the opportunity to end your marriage calmly, and more importantly, with dignity. Even if you don’t know if you are in agreement, sometimes it helps to meet with a lawyer to discuss the issues and find out whether you can come to an agreement. Sometimes a little mediation can go a long way.
The Benefits of Hiring An Uncontested Divorce Lawyer
A traditional divorce proceeding can linger on for months, sometimes even years depending on how complicated it is, and can end up being extremely expensive.
