Contested and uncontested divorce procedures – What you need to know.
At the Law Office of Janice V. Coulter, we provide legal representation for contested and uncontested divorce procedures.
An uncontested divorce is a divorce in which the spouses agree mutually on the terms of the divorce. Specifically, this means a consensus on the division of assets, consolidation or re-allocation of debts, spousal support, child support, and custody. A contested divorce occurs when one of the parties cannot agree, either about the terms of the divorce, or about getting divorced.
While it can be easy to idealize a civil process, often the emotional nature of the situation means it can be easier (and in some cases, less stressful) to settle fairly in court, with an objective third party providing the terms.
Often, the nuances in the law make it challenging to make considerable progress in your case, for both contested and uncontested divorces.
Divorce can be a messy business, but it doesn’t have to be. Janice offers level-headed and professional support for your legal case and has over 35 years of experience handling contested and uncontested divorces successfully for her clients.
If you’re looking for a compassionate professional, with experience working with marginalized communities with special legal needs (like LGBT, recent immigrants, and military) you can count on us to navigate the complexities of the law, and help you move forward with your life.
We care about our clients and we’d love to get the opportunity to earn your business. Give us a call today to schedule a complimentary consultation with Janice.
