Uncontested Divorces in Tampa
An uncontested matter is one where the spouses can reach a decision as to the terms of their dispute without going to trial. Uncontested divorces move more quickly through the courts and are less expensive than contested divorces. An uncontested divorce typically reduces hostility, allowing both parties to resume their lives more quickly. If your divorce is uncontested, it is still wise to have legal representation. While you may believe that your divorce is uncontested, an attorney can confirm whether you have addressed all important issues. An attorney can draft your marital settlement agreement so that there are no contradictions. At the very least, you should have an attorney review an agreement drafted by yourself or someone else to make sure that it is complete and in your best interests.
