Uncontested Divorce Attorney
Do you need an uncontested divorce lawyer in Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale or West Palm Beach? Getting an uncontested divorce is often an easier, less time consuming and less expensive method of dissolving a marriage than if the divorce is contested by one or both parties. An attorney can help the process go more smoothly, ensuring that all necessary paperwork and procedures are adhered to and protecting your best interests should the case become unpleasant.
If a couple can agree on how to divide marital property and debt, as well as alimony, child support, child custody and visitation (if children are involved), then the divorce is considered to be uncontested. However, even in uncontested, the air of compromise can start to break down and issues that had seemed to be resolved can again become a source of contention, so having an experienced attorney on your side can help you handle any situation that arises. The terms of any divorce can affect your life and the life of your family for many years to come, so it is important to make sure that your rights and interests are protected throughout the process.
In an uncontested divorce, both parties must make a full financial disclosure to one another and must be open to discussing (and compromising on) all aspects related to the dissolution of their marriage. This includes financial decisions, as well as any decisions related to custody and visitation of children (if applicable). By working out the details on their own, a couple can dissolve the marriage with less expense and less emotional distress than if attorneys got involved to handle the entire process of resolving each issue or if the case has to be brought before a judge in court for resolution.

Florida Uncontested Divorce FAQs
If a couple can go through the divorce process by agreeing to disagree while remaining committed to compromise in order to work out issues on their own, they can reap a number of benefits. These benefits include:
Lower costs and expenses
Fewer hassles that arise from dealing with the legal system
Greater confidentiality and privacy
Less confrontation, emotional stress, headaches and hard feelings
Limited impact on children, family members and friends
In an uncontested divorce, both parties involved come to agreement on their own related to all aspects of dissolving their marriage. Individuals must make a full financial disclosure and must be willing to work together and compromise with one another in order to come to mutually agreeable solutions. Once this is done, an attorney draws up a marital settlement agreement that spells out the details of the divorce. The final step is to go to court for a hearing to present the marital settlement agreement and finalize the procedure. This hearing is generally only a few minutes in duration and both parties do not need to be present at the hearing.
Although it is not necessary to have an attorney involved in the entire process of divorce, it is recommended that each party have an attorney involved in order to ensure that all paperwork and procedures are completed properly and to protect the rights and interests of each party.
An uncontested divorce in Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale or West Palm Beach can be resolved in as little as thirty days from the time both parties have come to agreement on all aspects related to the dissolution of the marriage. Of course, the actual time of any particular case will vary depending on the specifics of the case.
Florida is a no-fault divorce state, meaning that it is not necessary to prove fault in order to get a divorce. Since an uncontested divorce assumes that both parties can come to agreement about issues related to dissolving the marriage, such as division of marital property, spousal support
, child custody and child support, the only impact that fault has on the outcome results from how both spouses compromise based on any reaction to who is considered to be at fault. Other than that, fault does not legally factor into the process.
Although an uncontested divorce assumes that both parties can compromise and agree on their own about all aspects related to dissolving the marriage, using an attorney ensures that all necessary paperwork is properly prepared and worded, proper procedures are followed, and your interests are well protected. Although you are not required to have a lawyer handle an uncontested divorce case, it is highly recommended that you do so.
