Divorce can follow one of two paths: uncontested or contested divorce. In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse are in agreement on all or most issues. These cases are resolved with a Property Settlement Agreement which memorializes the terms of the parties’ agreement. The final piece of an uncontested divorce is a No Fault Divorce. Our attorneys will draft your Property Settlement Agreement and No Fault Divorce paperwork with speed and accuracy.
The second is a contested divorce. In a contested divorce, you and your spouse are unable to agree on the issues of custody, support and property division. You must present evidence to a judge who will resolve all disputed issues.
