Making Sure Your Uncontested Divorce Stays Uncontested
Many people who are involved in the divorce process believe that they have an uncontested divorce and therefore do not need the assistance of an attorney. However, divorce involves making many difficult, often unforeseen, decisions that couples don’t find easy to agree on. Those hard choices can turn a simple, uncontested divorce into an adversarial, contested divorce. The guidance of our experienced family law attorneys can help you negotiate or litigate if necessary, those difficult issues.

Offering Experienced, Personal Advice
When both parties are capable of agreeing on all issues involved in the divorce, from property division issues to child custody and visitation matters, this is known as an uncontested divorce. As experienced divorce lawyers, we assist clients in establishing divorce settlement agreements which properly address asset division, custody, support and other issues that the couple has agreed upon.
Uncontested divorce offers many benefits as the process is often less time-consuming, more cost-effective and less emotionally burdensome on all those involved. However, when disputes do arise, options remain for resolution outside of divorce litigation, including:
- Collaborative law: Collaborative divorce is a method by which both parties to the divorce (and their respective attorneys) agree to a resolution outside of trial. Conferences are conducted in an open, honest atmosphere in which the parties come together to discuss important decisions involving property division, child custody and other family issues.
- Divorce mediation: Mediation is a process by which the parties (and their respective attorneys, if applicable) attend negotiation meetings facilitated by a neutral, third party mediator.
Whether resolution is achieved through collaborative divorce or through mediation, uncontested divorce enables couples to maintain control over the critical decisions which impact their future and the future of their children.
