If you and your soon-to-be-ex can agree on everything, you may be able to file an uncontested divorce and get things over with as quickly, painlessly, and inexpensively as possible. In this much faster process, you're free to resume your life sooner - usually without ever setting foot in the courthouse.
When the parties who will be living with the results of the settlement have a hand in forming the agreement, they’re more likely to follow it and feel satisfied. However, saving yourself the heartache of a contested divorce now can lead to headaches down the line if you give up more than you can afford to, or if the agreement doesn’t cover the issues that arise later on. For that reason, the settlement agreement must comprehensive, fair to both parties, and created with an eye on your long-term goals. I can make sure that happens because I know the law and I know the most common problems that often arise. To avoid these problems, I personally customize every document to you and your circumstances.
