Divorce is the termination of the legal duties and responsibilities of marriage. Dissolving the bonds of matrimony between a married couple under the rule of law can be devastating when you or your spouse cannot come to an agreement. On the other hand, an uncontested divorce allows couples to decide on their own issues such as child custody and the division of assets, and it is usually much cheaper than trying to resolve issues during litigation proceedings.
We will process your uncontested divorce usually within six months or less, provided that we have all of the information and all of the parties are cooperating in the prosecution of the uncontested divorce action. If there are any real property or children involved, we can execute a stipulation of settlement once the parties are able to reach an amicable and mutually agreeable compromise of their dispute. For those difficult cases where the spouse cannot be found, we will conduct extensive public record searches and other searches to exhaust all reasonable possibility of locating and notifying the defendant spouse of the pending divorce litigation. In the event that we are unsuccessful in locating the defendant spouse to serve the summons and verified complaint, we can proceed with your uncontested divorce by publication pursuant to a court order.
