Uncontested Divorce

 

Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce

 

A married couple may decide to end their marriage through an uncontested divorce for many reasons.

 

The benefits of an uncontested divorce include:

 

  • ending their marriage in a friendlier manner, especially if they have children from the marriage

 

  • reaching an agreement as to parental responsibility and time-sharing with less stress for them and for their minor children, if they have any.

 

  • dividing their property and debt in a way that works better for them without litigation

 

  • saving time because the uncontested divorce process takes less time

 

  • saving money on attorneys’ fees
  •  

 

Flat-Fee Services for an Uncontested Divorce-the no headache option

 

We provide limited representation for uncontested divorces for a flat fee, plus court costs.

 

As with any divorce, we can only represent one spouse, and that is usually the spouse that contacts us, but we prepare one agreement which the other spouse can review with his/her own attorney if they want to.

 

This flat-fee service includes:

 

  • preparation of the required divorce papers

 

  • assisting with preparation of the mandatory financial affidavit, required if there is child support to be calculated

 

  • preparation of the marital settlement agreement, including a parenting plan and child support guidelines if there are children from the marriage as agreed to directly between the parties

 

  • preparation of the final judgment of dissolution of marriage (the divorce decree)

 

  • formally filing the case in court

 

  • setting the case for hearing

 

  • preparation of the client for the divorce hearing

 

  • appearing with the client on the day of hearing

Frequently-Asked Questions About Uncontested Divorces

 

How long does it take to get an uncontested divorce?

 

In our office, an uncontested divorce can take two to three weeks from the day we receive all of your divorce documents correctly signed as per our instructions. However, the process may take a bit longer depending on the availability of the uncontested divorce calendar of the judge assigned to your case. It may also vary depending on our office calendar as well.

 

Do both spouses need to attend the hearing of divorce?

 

No. Only the client spouse, designated as “petitioner”, needs to attend the hearing. The other spouse is free to attend the final hearing of divorce if he or she chooses to do so.

 

What can go wrong in an uncontested divorce?

 

Generally speaking, if the parties have decided to do their divorce as an uncontested one, there is very little that can go wrong. However, it is impossible to provide a complete list of everything that can go wrong if either one of the parties decides that an uncontested divorce is not what they want.

 

What can I do to prevent delays in my uncontested divorce?

 

It is important to follow the instructions provided at every step of the way. One of the most frequent delays is due to the parties not following the instructions.

 

What happens if my divorce becomes a contested or litigated divorce?

 

The most obvious answer is that you will not be able to use the uncontested divorce process. A litigated divorce is a very different process; and also takes longer and costs more than an uncontested divorce.

 

If we have minor children, can we get divorced without including a child support amount in the divorce?

 

No. When there are minor children, the divorce decree must include an amount for child support pursuant to the child support guidelines. Whether you enforce it if the other parent does not pay is a different question.
