Fort Lauderdale Uncontested Divorce Lawyer

Committed to make things easy for you

Uncontested divorce is the way to get a divorce without a dispute. However, it can be hard to predict in advance if a divorce will settle or if one party will not respond, so you may not enter divorce proceedings knowing if yours will be uncontested.

In this divorce scenario, complete agreement prevails between the spouses on all pertinent issues, encompassing marital property, alimony, child custody, visitation, child support, and shared debt division. The couple solidifies their accord by submitting a comprehensive agreement, settlement, or stipulation to the court.

To initiate an uncontested divorce in Fort Lauderdale, the couple must fulfill specific prerequisites. A residency of at least six months in the state is required before filing. Additionally, they need a written agreement encompassing all divorce-related matters, commonly known as a Marital Settlement Agreement.

The fundamental difference between contested and uncontested divorces lies in agreement.

Uncontested Divorce:

  • Agreement on all issues: Both spouses agree on all divorce-related matters like asset division, child custody and support, spousal support, and the terms of the split.
  • Faster and cheaper: This path is generally quicker and less expensive as court involvement is minimal. No contested issues mean no need for extensive legal battles.
  • Less stressful: The process is typically less emotionally draining as conflict is minimized.
  • Collaborative or independent: You can reach an agreement through collaboration with your ex-partner, mediation, or independent lawyers without involving the court.

Contested Divorce:

  • Disagreement on one or more issues: Spouses disagree on at least one aspect of the divorce, like child custody, property division, or financial support.
  • Slower and more expensive: Contested divorces involve court proceedings, lawyers, and potential trials, making them lengthy and costly.
  • More stressful: The adversarial nature of court proceedings can be emotionally taxing and potentially detrimental to future co-parenting or relations.
  • Resolution through negotiation or trial: Disagreements may be resolved through negotiation, mediation, or ultimately, a court trial where a judge decides the contested issues.

Uncontested Divorce FAQs

If you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement on certain issues, the divorce becomes contested. In such cases, you may need to seek legal assistance and potentially resolve the disputed matters through negotiation, mediation, or, if necessary, litigation in court.

While it is not legally required to have an attorney for an uncontested divorce, it is highly recommended. An attorney can provide valuable guidance, ensure that your rights are protected, help draft the necessary legal documents, and ensure that all legal requirements are met.

Both uncontested and collaborative divorces offer alternatives to the traditional adversarial approach, providing couples with more control over the outcome of their divorce and potentially reducing the emotional and financial costs associated with litigation. The choice between the two depends on the level of cooperation between the parties and their willingness to work together to reach a resolution.
