Uncontested Divorce

Working Hard on Your Behalf Throughout an Uncontested Divorce

If you and your spouse are thinking about getting a divorce, but you don’t want it to cause huge fights or unnecessary problems for your children, an uncontested divorce may be possible. Uncontested divorces occur when both parties can come to the table agreeing on what they want to happen as a result of a divorce. While each case is unique, most couples will need to agree on at least the following areas in order for a divorce to be uncontested:

  • Child Custody
  • Division of Assets (including homes, financial assets, etc)
  • Division of Debts
  • Child Support
  • Spousal Support (Alimony)
  • Timeline of Divorce
Hiring an Attorney for an Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested divorces are going to be significantly less expensive than a contested divorce because the attorneys involved really just have to write up the legal agreement, and have it approved by the courts. In the state of Georgia, one attorney can’t represent both sides of a divorce, so it is very likely that you will each need one. One attorney, however, can draft up the agreement, have it reviewed by the other attorney, and have all parties sign it very quickly.

With uncontested divorces, it is possible to have the entire process go from filing for divorce to finalization in as little as 31 days, and costing you surprisingly little.
