The end of a marriage does not necessarily mean an ugly divorce will occur. In fact, many divorce cases settle without ever having to appear in court. While avoiding a court trial is always a positive, and while some uncontested divorces can be extremely simple, oftentimes people will still need the help of a family law attorney to make sure things are done correctly. In a Florida divorce case in which neither spouse is challenging the divorce and in which there is an agreement on every potential issue, the divorce is often labeled “uncontested”. Regardless of your case being uncontested, there are still forms to fill out, financial disclosures to be made, and an agreement to be reached. The Tampa area divorce attorneys at the Family Law Advocates have years of experience helping men and women through all aspects of divorce, including those that are uncontested. Our firm believes that settling any case is generally going to be a better option than letting a judge make decisions affecting your future. Uncontested divorces tend to not only be less acrimonious, but typically are far less expensive than when spouses fight. If you’re interested in exploring your settlement options, or perhaps already have the terms of your divorce agreed to, give us a call.
