Is your divorce uncontested?

 What is an Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce is a divorce where the parties are able to reach a joint resolution regarding all the major issues and a settlement agreement signed by both parties is filed with the court at the same time as you file the initial divorce papers.  In uncontested divorces, you and your spouse also sign papers waiving service by the sheriff department, waiving a jury trial and asking that the case be set down on the assigned Judge’s first available calendar 31 days after the papers are filed.  In cases where there are no minor children involved, you both will also sign a waiver allowing the Judge to sign the final decree without any one having to go to court.  However, in cases with minor children at least one of the of you will need to attend a short hearing with me before the Judge so that the paper work can be reviewed and we can answer any questions that the Judge might have prior to signing the final decree.

You and your spouse must be able to reach an agreement on the following major issues:

  • Divison of real property, marital assets and personal property
  • Divison of joint marital debts, including who will get refiancing on any joint marital debt to have the other spouse removed from the loan
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Any changes either upwards or downwards to the mandatory child support rate as calculated under the Official Code of Georgia.

In order to proceed as an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse do not have to have already agreed 100% on all of these issues prior to your contacting my office.  Part of the service that I offer to you is helping you resolve any remaining issues by offering you both legal and practical advice based on my over twenty years of experience.  All that I need to proceed to help you with your divorce is a willingness of the part of both you and your spouse to work together to resolve any remaining issues in a quick and cordial manner.
