A divorce may be considered contested if the parties cannot agree on the division of assets, debt, child custody, parenting time and/or child support. One party files with the court and then the other party needs to be served and file an answer/response to the court.
A divorce is uncontested if both parties agree to the terms of division of assets, debts, child custody, parenting time, and child support. Both parties agree and sign the documents in one filing to the court. This saves money and time.
Preparing for a divorce or legal separation can be emotional, which makes it even more difficult to muddle through stacks of forms you may receive from the courthouse. We strive to make this process as smooth and easy as possible for you and we follow your case with you the whole way and consistently provide you status updates about your case.
You fill out our simple divorce questionnaire (see below) to provide us the information we need to prepare your documents. Once we receive the completed questionnaire and payment, we will have your documents ready for your review in 7 - 10 days (often sooner).
