More and more of our clients are asking about agreed divorce services in Rockwall. They are concerned about the length and cost (both financially and emotionally) or protracted litigation. At Guest and Gray Law Firm we understand that some cases need to be worked out. If you and your spouse can work together in a positive manner, then we should pursue an uncontested divorce. Our Rockwall family law team is proud to offer an uncontested divorce program that focuses on getting the results you need quickly and efficiently.
An uncontested divorce is what it sounds like. The parties must agree on all issues involving the marital estate. From 401(k)s to the house, cars, credit cards, student loans, boats, timeshares property, furniture, dishes and the dog. You and your spouse must all agree on all issues involving the children including child support, visitation, custody and health insurance. It can be a daunting process and that is where our experienced Rockwall Agreed Divorce team can help.
We have many clients who bought “do it yourself” kits online and either a) don’t know where to start or b) already have filed papers but now there is a problem. Online divorce services are the number 1 cause of problems with the marital estate after divorce. We have seen situations where the house couldn’t be sold because of online divorce papers. We have seen situations where one parent was supposed to pay off certain bills, but it was not enforceable because of the terms of the online divorce papers.
These online divorce kits are designed to be cheap. However, problems will arise if you do not use an experienced family lawyer to assist in a complicated divorce situation.
You must vary careful when drafting a divorce decree, errors in divorce kits can be very expensive to fix later. At Guest and Gray Law Firm our team has decades of experience with hundreds of family law cases. We can get your divorce done right the first time.
It is important to note that in an uncontested divorce we can only represent one party. That is, we can’t represent both you and your spouse. Ethical rules prevent joint representation, even for an agreed divorce. We will work hard to make sure that your uncontested divorce goes as quickly as possible. In general, for simple cases an uncontested divorce takes around 3-6 months. Longer if there are children and property involved.
Some agreed divorce requires mediation and we have a licensed family law mediator on staff to advise you on how to best prepare for mediation. If you are ready to discuss your agreed divorce options call our Rockwall family law team today and we will get started. You can move on with your life and protect your children without the cost and animosity of a bitter court battle. Our family law consultations are always free and confidential.
