Atlanta Uncontested Divorce Attorney


In an uncontested divorce, couples work with an attorney to settle their issues outside of court. An uncontested divorce offers distinct advantages, as it allows the parties to freely craft the terms of their divorce with minimal court intervention. This allows couples to save time and money, as the cooperative nature of the uncontested divorce process cuts down on the need for extensive settlement negotiation. During an uncontested divorce, the role of the attorney is to counsel parties regarding the ramifications of certain settlement options, prepare documents the court requires to finalize the divorce and divide assets, and appear at any hearings called by the Court (though most uncontested matters do not require a hearing).

How Does an Uncontested Divorce Work?

By definition, an uncontested divorce means that spouses are in agreement on all relevant issues prior to filing for divorce. Some couples come to these agreements independently. Other couples may have questions they need answered before they can arrive at a joint decision—which can best be accomplished at a consultation. The major areas parties must agree upon in an uncontested divorce are:

  • Property Division/Equitable Distribution
  • Child Custody and Visitation
  • Child Support
  • Alimony
  • What Are the Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce?

    • Most uncontested divorces are finalized much faster than contested divorces.
    • Parties save money in an uncontested divorce because there is no need for extensive settlement negotiation or court appearances.
    • In some cases, parties to an uncontested divorce are able to use a single attorney throughout the entire process, further cutting down on expenses.
    • An uncontested divorce is much more likely to leave the parties on amicable terms—with both parties feeling like they had a hand in the decision making. This bodes well for both the parties and, if applicable, their children.
