Oftentimes, clients will seek an attorney to represent them in an “Uncontested” or “Agreed Upon” divorce. An uncontested/agreed divorce may be an option if you and your spouse are already in agreement to all aspects of your divorce. This includes child custody and support, property division and your spouse’s willingness to cooperate with your attorney as necessary. If your spouse doesn’t have an attorney, we can speak with him or her and answer their questions about the process and help with the negotiations.
If children are involved uncontested divorces are often much easier on them than a long drawn out divorce where the prolonged stress of the process can become difficult to hide by stressed out and emotionally distraught parents. What’s more, unfortunately, children often become unwitting pawns in their parent’s divorces, carrying messages back and forth and getting involved in aspects of their parent’s divorces that they would be better off being unaware of.
