If you and your spouse have decided to go through with an uncontested divorce, it is probably because you want to get your divorce over with as quickly, painlessly, and cheaply as possible. Although an uncontested divorce is in fact the best way to achieve these goals, it can still be a little complicated and overwhelming to some. It is important that you enlist the help of a knowledgeable, supportive lawyer to help you during this troubling time. An experienced lawyer can help you complete your uncontested divorce forms, and follow through with your divorce with as little headache as possible.
What you need to know
It is important to note that a lawyer is only able to represent either you or your spouse, not both – even though uncontested divorces are often quite cooperative. You will have to decide which party a lawyer is going to directly represent, however, they may be able to essentially help both of you as they guide and advise one of you in how to fill out the uncontested divorce forms and navigate the rest of the process.
Of equal importance is that you and your spouse are sure that an uncontested divorce is right for you before you decide to move forward. If there are claims of abuse or any other contested variables to your divorce, and if you and your spouse do not fundamentally agree on major issues surrounding your divorce, then an uncontested divorce is probably not the best option.
What a lawyer can do for you
A lawyer will be able to meet with you, either over the phone or in person, and explain the function of each form, and exactly how it should be completed. They can help you make the best possible decisions, and compile your uncontested divorce forms for you to sign. Once both spouses have signed each form, a lawyer will be able to read through everything to make sure that it is completely in order, and make any necessary alterations before submitting the forms with the court.
With the help of a qualified divorce lawyer working at your side, your divorce could be finalized in a matter of weeks. Doing everything right the first time will expedite the process, and cut down on expenses in the long run. In an uncontested divorce, it is often the case that what is best for one spouse is also best for the other. The major objective is to get the divorce over with and to cooperate as much as possible. Unlike contested divorces, an uncontested divorce does not need to be a source of major frustration or expense.
