While many married couples have highly contested divorce proceedings that drag on for years, there are other couples that simply know it is time to move on and wish to end their marriage quickly and efficiently. When you and your spouse agree on all aspects of your divorce, it is called an uncontested divorce. However, many uncontested divorces do not last once a closer inspection of the divorce agreement is conducted by a legal professional since there are often overlooked issues that raise conflict. If you want to have a truly uncontested divorce, it is crucial that you speak with a family lawyer before getting too far ahead. You can save time and expense if it is done properly the first time instead of being rejected by a family law judge on the day of a final hearing.

If you and your spouse really can have an uncontested divorce, the possibility is often worth exploring due to its many benefits.

A Florida family law court might not accept your uncontested divorce agreement unless the documents you file clearly state your intentions and plans. Your paperwork must also be thorough and leave nothing out or up to chance. Have you considered your visitation agreement and how it relates to birthdays, vacations, and holidays? What will happen to your shared retirement accounts – and debts?
Our Jacksonville divorce attorneys can answer your questions, explain your rights, and help you identify potential legal pitfalls that otherwise would have gone unnoticed. We enjoy sitting down with our clients, getting to know them personally, and drafting a divorce agreement with them to ensure thoroughness. If you have already drafted one with your soon-to-be ex-spouse, we would be happy to put our professional minds to good work and review it back-to-front-to-back.
