QUALIFICATIONS FOR UNCONTESTED DIVORCE
In order to qualify for an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must be in complete agreement on all major factors in your divorce. A disagreement on any one of these factors means your divorce will become contested and you will have to go to trial.
Couples wishing to file for an uncontested divorce must agree on the following issues:
- Property division
- Alimony/spousal support
- Child support
- Allocation of debts
- Child custody
- Parenting plan/visitation
While you may not initially agree on one of these issues, mediation and negotiation out of court can help you come to a resolution. Our family law attorneys may be able to help you with this process by mediating negotiations and helping you come to a mutual agreement before filing the divorce paperwork.
