An Uncontested Divorce (no fault divorce) is a divorce wherein both spouses agree on ALL terms of the divorce. If both parties have agreed ahead of time on ALL issues, Turner Law Offices, P.C. can handle your Uncontested Divorce for low retainer fee. On the other hand, if there is only one small issue on which the spouses cannot agree, then the divorce is a contested divorce, and further legal proceedings will be necessary and costs will be higher. The uncontested divorce is least expensive when the parties have an agreement from the beginning, and meet with the lawyer to draw up the papers to file with the Court. If you and your spouse basically agree, but there are some minor disagreements, we can probably consult with you and work through the disagreements and help you get an Uncontested Divorce. We have a history of effectively negotiating Marital Dissolution Agreements and parenting plans to avoid a contested divorce and the expense involved. We have vast experience mediating divorce matters, and sometimes we can utilize mediation to settle your case.
