When a married couple that is ready to divorce has worked out all of the important issues to them, it is considered to be an uncontested divorce. If the pair can mutually establish terms for property division, child custody and support issues, then they are more likely to part amicably.
There comes a point in some marriages when both people realize that they would be better apart than they have been together. There may be a specific cause to end the marriage, there may not be. Regardless of your reasons for wanting a divorce, you need an attorney that can guide you through the process as effectively as possible so you can move forward with your life.
When you and your current partner both agree that divorce is the best option, a divorce attorney can help you begin the process of rebuilding your life as a single person.
WHAT ISSUES MUST BE ADDRESSED?
Whether your divorce is one of no fault, contest or uncontested a settlement must be approved by the court. Therefore, it is very important to consult an attorney that will carefully consider and review the terms you and your divorcing partner have come to agree on. It will also be important that you and your current spouse obtain separate counsel to review the terms from each of your perspectives. We cannot represent both of you.
