[b]Uncontested Divorce[/b]

Some divorces may require time in court, but some couples choose to settle out of court with amicable resolutions. An uncontested divorce ends a marriage amicably and presents multiple benefits for couples. It reduces emotional difficulties, lowers the cost of divorcing, and positively resolves divorce-related problems. Law Office of Gordon N. Shayne offers their legal expertise for clients who are seeking an uncontested divorce. The firm protects the interests of a client throughout the arbitration and mediation process.

In uncontested divorces, at least one party must file a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage and a Summons, after which both parties must wait at least 92 days before the finalization of their divorce. During that period, the parties may discuss child custody, division of assets and spousal support with the assistance of their lawyers.

Uncontested divorces are not all the same. The law firm provides legal assistance in several issues, which include:

• Uncontested Divorce Law Involving Property – if a divorcing couple owns property, they must reach an agreement on how to divide assets and determine spousal maintenance.
• Uncontested Divorce Law Involving Children – decisions on child custody will determine the amount of contact a parent will have with their child after divorce. A judge will get to decide where the child will live and how much support he or she gets.

The law firm has more than three decades of legal experience handling different types of contested divorce scenarios. The firm will keep the best interests of their clients in mind when making recommendations and when they assist them through the legal process.
