Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested divorce cases, when both parties easily come to an agreement on how they will divide their assets, make the divorce process a little less stressful. Even when you both are able to come to an agreement, you still need the assistance of a qualified attorney to ensure the divorce process will continue to go smoothly. At The Law Offices of Joe Torri, we are experienced in divorce law and will make sure your uncontested divorce proceedings go smoothly.

Facts About Uncontested Divorce

Couples usually file uncontested divorces when they have already agreed on all the issues concerning their case. Some issues that must be resolved before filing a joint petition for uncontested divorce include:

  • Amount of spousal support to be given
  • Division of all the marital assets and debts
  • Issues about child support custody and child support

Most uncontested divorces are not as costly as contested divorces because they are usually approved in a period of one to two months. This prevents the couple from spending a lot of time in court and spending more money on legal fees.

Filing an Uncontested Divorce Case

As soon as all divorce issues are resolved, a joint petition for divorce can be filed. The document must have an outline on how the couple decides to handle their division of assets and child custody. If the judge is satisfied with the outline, the divorce can be quickly granted. The case will be considered as a contested divorce, if the court discovers that the couple does not agree on any part of the divorce agreement.

Finding the Right Divorce Attorney

Most couples don't think they need to hire a divorce law attorney when they have already reached an agreement. An experienced lawyer can help check or review the agreement and prepare all the necessary paperwork for the case. The attorney can also help file the petition in court.

Our firm will answer all questions or doubts that you may have about your case. We can help prevent your uncontested divorce from turning into a more costly contested divorce case.
