In many cases, we are able to negotiate and reach agreements regarding the issues of child custody, child support, spousal support and property division without ever setting foot in a courtroom. We can communicate with your spouse or his or her attorney to attempt to reach agreeable terms related to your separation. If you and your spouse have already discussed many issues and have made decisions together, we can prepare the necessary legal documents to capture your agreement.
What To Watch Out For
A North Carolina family law court might not accept your uncontested divorce agreement unless the documents you file clearly state your intentions and plans. Your paperwork must also be thorough and leave nothing out or up to chance. Have you considered your visitation agreement and how it relates to birthdays, vacations, and holidays? What will happen to your shared retirement accounts – and debts?
While many married couples have highly contested divorce proceedings that drag on for years, there are other couples that simply know it is time to move on and wish to end their marriage quickly and efficiently. When you and your spouse agree on all aspects of your divorce, it is called an uncontested divorce.
