Uncontested Divorce

Are you looking for a fair and amicable end to your marriage? Have you and your spouse worked together to negotiate a settlement?

Not every divorce needs to be a long, expensive and contested process. In many cases, parties work together to settle their all of their issues – without the assistance of lawyers, courts, or mediators. Under these circumstances, parties are looking for an attorney to help formalize the process through the courts – quickly and cost effectively.

Typically, one of the parties will hire CIESLA | BEELER to prepare the paperwork necessary to obtain a divorce, which includes the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, Marital Settlement Agreement and Judgment for Dissolution of Marriage.

Lawyers can not represent both spouses in a divorce. Your spouse will need to review and sign the documents. Then, once the documents are reviewed, signed off on, and filed, we will obtain a court date and appear with you to obtain entry of your divorce judgment.

If you and your spouse can communicate effectively and can work together to negotiate a settlement that is fair and reasonable – an uncontested divorce may be your best option. However, keep in mind that your case may involve certain complexities that require more complicated legal analysis and advice – some circumstances include cases that involve sophisticated tax planning, business succession planning, real estate transactions and children’s issues. The attorneys at CIESLA | BEELER can provide you with information and advice regarding your case, and the necessary steps to help you and your spouse move on to the next phase of your life.
