Uncontested Divorce

Dissolving Your Marriage in a Non-Adversarial Manner

When spouses decide to part ways amicably, they can file an uncontested divorce. This means they are in agreement on major issues involving children and finances and are committed to a non-adversarial marriage dissolution. This type of divorce allows a couple to end their marriage quickly and in a cost-effective manner.

Finding Mutually Beneficial Solutions

Uncontested divorces are typically considered simple divorces. In this process, the spouses are in agreement on all issues, including:

  • Child custody
  • Visitation
  • Child support
  • Spousal support or alimony
  • Property division

An uncontested divorce is an attractive process for many people who want to dissolve the marriage quickly and at a reasonable cost, as well as maintain control over the outcome. However, this can only take place if both spouses agree to the divorce and there are no disputes over the division of marital property or any issues related to children. In these cases, Mr. Schmit can only represent one party; the other spouse can approve the documents, but still retains the right to consult his or her own attorney, if they wish.
