Understanding Uncontested Divorce

Divorce is stressful enough, even when both parties agree it is for the best. By hiring an attorney, you increase the odds that you start the next chapter of your life on the right tone. Below are a few common questions our clients have asked that may be useful for you.

How Does Uncontested Divorce Work?

Divorce, sometimes called a dissolution of marriage, varies based on which state you live in. Generally speaking, if both you and your spouse can agree on the terms of your divorce, including property division, child custody and support, you may be able to bypass mediation or other lengthy and expensive court processes. Once the court grants your petition, your divorce will be finalized.

What Happens To Our Property?

It is extremely important to fully account for all individual and shared property. This means you need to fully account for real estate, bank accounts, businesses, investments and debt. You and your spouse must also agree to how this property is divided.

In a contested divorce, the judge is responsible for allocating the division of property and debt.

Will I Be Eligible For/Need To Pay Maintenance (Formerly Known As Alimony)?
