Usually the quickest and easiest form of divorce, but again, this is if you and your spouse agree on ALL issues! Let’s say ALL again.
ALL issues are required to be agreed upon for an uncontested divorce.
If anything is contested, you have a contested divorce, and there is a different course of action for a contested divorce with our office.
This is a matter in which you and your spouse agree on all issues. If there are minor children, you and your spouse agree on time-sharing and child support, among other children’s issues. If you have marital property, you both agree on the distribution of your property and liabilities. And you also agree on who will pay attorneys fees and the basic premise that you both wish to have the divorce.
Before deciding that it is an uncontested divorce, it is sometimes a good idea to have a full detailed consultation to determine your rights and responsibilities in your divorce.
Many people call the office with the feeling that their divorce is uncontested. However, they sometimes may realize that there are issues (sometimes very very very important issues) that are still unresolved and, therefore, your case be a contested divorce.
We ask that you think about whether it is likely to be an uncontested or a contested divorce as the firm strives to meet the client’s goals throughout the representation. If a case changes mid-case from uncontested to a contested divorce, it may drastically change the course of representation.
An uncontested matter normally moves quicker through the Courts than a contested case, and your Attorney can explain the process here at Foley Family Law.
