Raleigh Uncontested Divorce Lawyers

If you are considering or already going through an uncontested divorce, contact Marshall & Taylor PLLC for assistance. Uncontested divorce, making up the majority of divorces in the United States, occurs when both parties are willing to split amicably and agree on a settlement. Although there are not as many issues to work out with an uncontested divorce, the ending of any marriage can be a tumultuous time. In order to come to an agreement with your spouse, you will need to address things such as dividing property and debt, child custody, and child or spousal support.

Working through the details of a divorce agreement can be the most overwhelming part of ending a marriage, even if your divorce is uncontested. Our Raleigh uncontested divorce attorneys at Marshall & Taylor PLLC can help you navigate the detailed process of establishing a fair and equitable divorce agreement. Contact our Raleigh divorce attorneys at 919-833-1040 to schedule a consultation.

Why Do I Need a Lawyer?

With the end of any marriage, there is the need to properly divide accumulated property and debts and to settle issues on child custody and support. With emotions running high, it can be difficult to express your specific wants and needs. Especially when you are ending your marriage amicably, it can be challenging to express your own desires while trying to maintain the peace.

In order to ensure you and your spouse receive a fair split of your assets, you will need an attorney that will be objective in expressing your needs. More importantly, you will need an experienced negotiator to assure that you do not lose something more important, like primary custody of your children. You need an attorney that will evaluate your case, gather proper documentation, and express your needs accurately to guarantee the best outcome.

Benefits of an uncontested divorce

An uncontested divorce is not right in every situation or for every couple, but for those couples who can work together with a legal professional to agree upon the terms of a divorce agreement, an uncontested divorce offers considerable benefits, some of the most significant of which include:

  • Saving time and money: The reason why divorces are so time-consuming and expensive is because couples generally cannot agree. When couples cannot make decisions peacefully, court proceedings are necessary to reach an agreement. This can significantly increase the divorce period. An uncontested divorce, meanwhile, where two parties negotiate to resolve the situation, avoids a lot of court proceedings and costs. The attorneys for each side will negotiate until they can reach an agreement about assets and child custody issues. Because you will stay out of court, you will only need to pay for the attorney’s time and the cost of filing papers rather than court costs and other legal fees.
  • Keeping conflict minimal: If you both agree to an amicable divorce, because your attorney is advocating on your behalf and negotiating with ex-spouse’s attorney, it is much easier for issues to be resolved quickly.
  • Reaching settlement terms amicably: Often in an uncontested divorce, both partners are in agreement that the marriage is over and that assets need to be split between both parties. If the attorneys of both spouses can agree on a settlement without going to court, there is more room to compromise and less time wasted in general.
  • Keeping children from experiencing a contentious divorce: Because there are no court proceedings and no animosity between the parties, children that may be in the middle of the divorce are more likely to see their parents working together to find a solution rather than a vicious custody battle.
