Uncontested Divorce

Alabama Uncontested Divorce Attorney

When both parties agree, an uncontested divorce is a less expensive choice.

It happens. A couple decides to divorce, and they agree on how assets should be divided and how child custody should be handled. When you are both in agreement, there are none of the negotiations, arguments and extra court time required to settle matters.

In some cases, only one party has a lawyer. In other cases, both have lawyers who review the documents to ensure that all issues are covered and that it’s presented in the right format for the court’s review.

  • When the agreement is on paper, there may be some adjustments, but it is usually still uncontested.
  • There is no time-consuming discovery phase in an uncontested divorce.
  • It is important to have an attorney to make sure all the paperwork is properly done and will stand up in court and that the divorce is legal.
  • If serious disagreements arise that cannot be settled, the divorce can no longer be considered “uncontested.” At that time you need an experienced Alabama contested divorce attorney.

If you agree on the terms of a divorce, you can save time and money.

Not every divorce is contentious or complicated, especially when the marriage is short term and the assets are easily divided. If you and your spouse agree on terms, make an appointment with an Alabama uncontested divorce lawyer to discuss an uncontested divorce. Call 205-403-5577 or contact us by email.
