Insightful Advice For An Amicable Divorce
In some situations, it’s possible to obtain a divorce without ever having to appear in court — and with significantly lower legal fees than would otherwise be incurred in a traditional divorce. Such “uncontested” divorces can often be finalized and a divorce decree issued in as little as 30 days from the date of filing.
At the Law Office of Amy L. Gervich, our experienced family law lawyers serve clients throughout the greater St. Louis, Missouri, area, who wish to obtain an uncontested divorce without protracted litigation or negotiations. These are not “do-it-yourself divorces.” Rather, we provide complete services that enable a couple to achieve a speedy dissolution of the marriage in a way that allows each party to move forward in their lives in the best manner possible.
Uncontested Divorce — Is It Right For You?
An uncontested divorce is most suitable for couples who do not have children or significant property issues. If either is present in your marriage, then an uncontested divorce may not be feasible. At the Law Office of Amy L. Gervich, an experienced divorce attorney can review your situation and discuss your legal options.
If we do not recommend an uncontested divorce, and you and your spouse are in broad agreement about issues involving children and divorce, we may still be able to help you obtain a divorce through a negotiated settlement rather than litigation. This will save legal costs and spare you from the emotional turmoil that a court fight brings.
The Uncontested Divorce Process
If an uncontested divorce is appropriate for you, the Law Office of Amy L. Gervich can represent you in all aspects of your divorce for a reasonable fee. We can:
- Identify any potential stumbling blocks upfront that may make an uncontested divorce unfeasible
- Prepare divorce papers and file them in court
- Prepare a marital settlement agreement
- Appear in court on your behalf to finalize the divorce
Neither you nor your spouse will have to appear in court. However, you should be aware that during the course of an uncontested divorce, issues could arise that can require more extensive negotiation or litigation. In this situation, you will have to undertake a traditional divorce proceeding.
