Atlanta Uncontested Divorce Lawyer

Experienced Uncontested Divorce Lawyers Serving Atlanta, Georgia

Atlanta Uncontested Divorce LawyerAn uncontested divorce is a divorce where both parties have resolved all issues in their case and the parties simply want an Atlanta uncontested divorce lawyer to prepare the paperwork which reflects what the parties have agreed to and help guide the process.

Our firm can help you with an uncontested divorce or uncontested family law matter (such as a modification which similarly can be uncontested) and explain the process and statutory waiting period (it is 31 days in Georgia for an uncontested area divorce) and other legal requirements.

Achieving a comprehensive settlement agreement with your spouse regarding the terms of your divorce offers numerous advantages. Firstly, in an uncontested divorce, the agreement is predetermined, providing clarity and predictability regarding the outcome. Furthermore, allowing a judge to decide in a trial introduces a level of uncertainty. Secondly, uncontested divorces tend to be more cost-effective compared to contested ones, as there are no prolonged legal battles between attorneys. Lastly, individuals who actively participate in crafting the terms of their uncontested divorce are more inclined to adhere to those terms. While negotiations entail compromise, both parties acknowledge their direct involvement in shaping the outcome, rather than having it imposed by a judge.

Most areas of focus during an uncontested divorce in Atlanta revolve around these 4 areas of interest for the parties:

Based upon our experience at Naggiar & Sarif Family Law Attorneys, often these potentially difficult details can be worked out with relative ease if both parties already have a general outlier for the resolution of their divorce. With this said however, there are a number of cases over the past 20 years we have performed where the parties find what appeared to be a general agreement does not exactly pan out that way when we get into various important details in the divorce.
