An uncontested divorce is one in which both couples come to a mutual agreement on the terms of the divorce without court intervention. In this type of divorce, both parties have no objections to the divorce, and there is no contest on the start of the divorce proceedings. We have many years of expertise, having handling numerous uncontested divorce proceedings.
The fact that a divorce is uncontested does not negate the necessity for capable legal representation during the process. It is still of vital importance to have adequate legal counsel during uncontested divorce proceedings. We provide our client with the proper legal services and ensure fair terms of settlement. We also ensure the proper paperwork is drafted and filed so the Judge can finalize the divorce without the parties going to court.
In our experience, many people when faced with the prospect of a seamless marital dissolution process often fail to critically examine the full settlement agreement of the divorce. This is where we come in; we carefully examine all the terms to determine whether they are fair or not.
There are many complicating factors that can arise even in an uncontested divorce. These factors may include the presence of under-aged children, high value properties and assets etc. Some of these assets may need to be included or excluded depending on the terms of the divorce agreement. If not properly managed, an uncontested divorce may quickly become a contested one, especially when one party feels cheated. At Steffy Law P.C., we ensure adequate management of the terms especially with regards to child support and asset division which must be agreed upon by both parties after full financial disclosure.
Before applying or agreeing to an uncontested divorce, there are a few issues that must be considered carefully. Some of these issues include:
Do you require an order of protection to keep you safe from your spouse during and after the proceedings?
Does your spouse have a retirement pension plan?
Do you owe debts together with your spouse?
Do you have joint asset holdings with your spouse?
Do you need continued child support from your spouse?
These are just some of the issue that must be examined critically before applying or agreeing to an uncontested divorce. At Steffy Law P.C., we can help you wade through these issues and provide you with the proper legal steps to take in order to come out the process with some measure of satisfaction.
