Uncontested Divorce Attorney Serving Jacksonville, Florida
The decision to divorce is most often made in a contentious setting. But some couples can avoid this altogether and amicably part ways through an uncontested divorce. This is a divorce that’s achieved when both parties agree on the terms of their separation. If you and your spouse have decided to divorce together, sit down with a Jacksonville uncontested divorce attorney to discuss if you have an uncontested divorce. However, there are many different aspects that you must both agree on.
To obtain an uncontested divorce, both spouses must decide on several factors. The components that constitute an uncontested divorce filing are:
- Both spouses want a divorce
- The division of property has been agreed on
- Time-Sharing has been scrupulously decided
- Child support amounts are determined
- Alimony has been settled
- All other issues are established
- Both parties are willing to sign all documents
If every single one of these conditions isn’t satisfied, an uncontested divorce cannot be reached. You may both agree on almost every component, but are stuck on one issue. Maybe there are a few components on the above list that are sticking points. Whatever the obstacle, have a Jacksonville uncontested divorce attorney sit down with both spouses and help them to come to a fair resolution. An uncontested divorce is quicker and less costly than a contested one, so it behooves a couple to try for an uncontested divorce. It would be regrettable, if only a few disagreements kept you from that goal.

Once you have agreed on all the components, your uncontested divorce filing must be complete, correctly drawn up, and include all the necessary, court-required documentation.
