Agreed Divorce

An uncontested (agreed) divorce is a divorce where both spouses are able to reach an agreement on all issues related to the divorce, such as child custody, visitation, child support, division of marital assets and debts, and even alimony, in some cases. The parties don’t need to have the agreement in place at the time the divorce is filed, but will need to be able to reach an agreement, prior to the divorce being finalized.  Remember, at least 60 days must pass, from the date of filing, before a divorce can be finalized.  One attorney is typically used to file the divorce proceeding and to prepare all paperwork related to the divorce.  However, the party not being represented by an attorney may choose to have the final paperwork reviewed by an attorney of their choosing.
