Marcy Can Help You Through a Virginia Uncontested Divorce
Are you interested in a Virginia uncontested divorce? In Virginia, an uncontested divorce is one in which the parties are able to agree on the major issues of how their property and debt is divided, child custody and support, and spousal support. It doesn’t necessarily mean there are no disagreements, but it does mean the parties are able to resolve any disagreements without having to go to court.
Typically the parties will have a document prepared that sets out all of their agreements and covers all of the legal issues that need to be addressed. Getting to a final agreement is really the most difficult part of the process.
Once the couple has an acceptable agreement and both have signed, finalizing the divorce is a simple process and no court appearance is necessary. This is what is ultimately meant by “uncontested” divorce.
Most couples definitely express a desire for a Virginia uncontested divorce, as these are much less expensive, take less time, and are less stressful. They also allow the couple, rather than a judge, to maintain control of all the decisions that need to be made through the divorce process. Clients also appreciate the privacy that an uncontested divorce allows.
Uncontested divorces are an option for any divorcing couple, whether they do it themselves or go through negotiation with lawyers, mediation, or the collaborative process. Any divorce that does not go to court is considered an uncontested divorce, which means the couple is able to resolve all their issues without having to involve the courts.
Uncontested divorces can range from the most simple situations when the couple has no children or joint property, to very complex cases where the couple is able to work through a parenting plan and their property issues. As long as the courts are not involved, these cases are considered uncontested.
The more you and your spouse can agree, the more money you’ll save with an uncontested divorce
The more agreement the spouses have about issues of dividing property, child support and visitation and alimony, the less money their divorce will cost. The costly divorces are the ones where the spouses can’t agree on custody or visitation or support or division of property. In these divisive cases the clients will pay a large retainer to the attorneys and the attorneys will charge the clients for the time they spend working on the case.
