Agreed Divorce / Uncontested Divorce
Every divorce case is different. Sometimes, it is in the best interest of our clients to litigate aggressively and sometimes our clients are best served by settling divorce cases quickly and amicably. At Powell Law Offices, P.C., we have extensive experience in both types of cases.
In an agreed divorce, parties work together to resolve their issues in an amicable and often cost-effective manner. Instead of pursuing a resolution through the court, parties can negotiate and work collaboratively to reach an agreement on the issues of a case. Once reached, the parties can file their agreement with the court, relieving everyone of the necessity of having the court decide the issues. This route can benefit everyone involved because it allows the parties to maintain more control while saving time, money and often creating an environment that places less stress on the parties and their children.An Agreed Divorce Can Reduce Legal Fees
Many people initially delay involving an attorney in their legal matters because of fears related to the cost of legal representation. They often have an impression that utilizing an attorney for a divorce can unnecessarily delay the process or increase expenses. At Powell Law Offices, P.C., this is never our goal. With many years of experience in collaborative and agreed divorce, we always seek efficient and cost-effective solutions for our clients. We will thoroughly discuss all options with you at the time of our initial consult, and if an agreement can be reached quickly and amicably, we will happily pursue this course in an effort to minimize your stress and legal fees.An Agreed Divorce is not Right for Every Situation
Although completing an agreed divorce often sounds much more appealing than participating in a contested case, an agreed divorce is not right in every situation. At your initial consultation with our office, we look at the unique facts of your case to determine the best course of action for you and your family. When determining how to proceed, we consider many aspects of your situation, including the following:
- Does working with your spouse regarding sensitive matters often cause extreme anger or conflict, or are you able to communicate with your spouse to reach agreements on sensitive matters?
- Can you trust your spouse to participate in good faith during the course of the case?
- Do you fully understand the issues that may arise in your divorce, and are you able to vocalize your wishes and goals?
- Do you have a good picture of your current financial situation?
- Is there any type of abuse present in your relationship?
The answers to these questions will help us determine what type of divorce is right for you. Every client and situation is different, and it is in your best interest to choose a trusted, experienced attorney to help counsel you as you determine how to proceed. Our attorneys can provide you with this type of counsel.We Can Help With an Agreed Divorce
