Divorce is a major life event that can cause emotional stress no matter what the circumstances are, but a Contested Divorce is an especially draining experience, financially and emotionally. There are ways to avoid this difficult road, and a family divorce lawyer can help you navigate an uncontested divorce by helping you and your spouse come to an agreement on things like child support, spousal support, custody, visitation, property division and more.

Both parties will have to agree on all of these issues before an uncontested divorce can be achieved. Mediation can help, along with an experienced divorce attorney who can advise you on the best course of action, help you draft paperwork, and assist with quickly concluding the divorce process.
