Uncontested Divorce Lawyers in Greenwood MS
Going through a divorce is probably one of the most stressful events you and your family will face. However, opting to resolve your divorce through the uncontested route will definitely make the baggage lighter for your family as a whole, both emotionally and financially. If you and your spouse have very few discussions in terms of relevant issues such as property division, spousal support, and child custody and support, and if you are both in agreement with regard to any decisions to be made, uncontested divorce is the most convenient, least stressful, and inexpensive way to end your marriage.
Whether you and your spouse have agreed to an uncontested divorce, or you have filed for a divorce, and your spouse refuses to respond or participate. Abraham & Associates understand the legal support and guidance you need throughout the process. With intimate knowledge of family law and with years of experience, we will handle your case efficiently and find a resolution as quickly as possible.
What Our Uncontested Divorce Lawyers Recommend.
Most family law attorneys recommend uncontested divorce, or a more amicable approach, to save time and money. Litigation can take too long and can be very expensive. If spouses can agree on property division, spousal support, child support and custody, and visitation, all that remains is to file a marital settlement agreement with the court.
Also, by working out agreements together, the spouses keep more control over the outcome and are both likely to walk away feeling contented. You can negotiate terms based on your particular needs and adjust accordingly.
Lastly, if there is a minor conflict between the two parties, an uncontested divorce is a way to keep it that way. It offers you the chance to end your marriage privately and with dignity. The public does not need to know the disclosures you make to each other and the numerous proposals you discuss as you try to reach an agreement.
How it Works
The first step in an uncontested divorce is to draft a marital settlement agreement, which will contain the agreements of both parties concerning relevant family issues. After this document is agreed upon, one of the spouses needs to file an official complaint of divorce with the court, to which the non-filing spouse needs to respond within a reasonable time. An uncontested divorce can then be scheduled if there are no objections to the complaint.
It is important, however, to consult a family law attorney first before entering into a divorce settlement agreement so you can understand your legal rights with divorce.
