Charleston Uncontested Divorce Lawyers

Insight from Our Uncontested Divorce Attorneys

Even when a divorce is uncontested, it can still be a very trying time. Not only do you and your spouse have to craft a plan that you both agree on, but then have to follow through and ensure that plan is carried out appropriately. Whether you are both on the same page about every issue or have just a few hang-ups, Shaw Law Firm, LLC is here to guide you through the process.

Our Charleston uncontested divorce lawyers have handled a wide range of cases, including uncontested divorces, and can use this insight to help with your situation. We strive to provide supportive representation that is designed to help you navigate the challenges of any divorce, whether uncontested or not. From helping you set realistic and manageable goals to ensuring your rights and best interests remain safeguarded, we offer a unique level of legal service.

Is Uncontested Divorce Right for Me?

When both you and your spouse are in agreement over the majority of the issues involved, it is considered uncontested. If you believe that you and your spouse can come up with a plan regarding child custody, property division, support, and other issues without any major disputes, an uncontested divorce is likely a good option for you both to pursue.

An uncontested divorce can provide you with many benefits:

  • Reduced time to finish the process
  • Minimal court fees due to no litigation
  • Models cooperation and peace for children
  • Ensures you both get an agreeable outcome

However, just because you and your spouse agree on everything does not mean that legal counsel is not needed during this process. Having a representative in an uncontested divorce is just as crucial as having one in a contested one. Our lawyers in Charleston can help you determine how to handle the marital home, how to craft a fair parenting schedule, and how to prepare for any tax consequences, among other matters. Overall, having guidance through an uncontested divorce can help ensure a positive outcome.

Take the First Step Toward Your Simple Divorce

Uncontested divorces can allow you and your spouse to dissolve your marriage in a peaceful and positive manner. To qualify for this type of divorce you must both agree on property division, child support, and custody issues, and meet all residency requirements.

Also, there is a one year separation required unless you have grounds for divorce such as adultery, habitual drunkenness or physical cruelty. Shaw Law Firm, LLC can help review your case and determine if a simple divorce is the best option. We can also walk you through all the paperwork and other processes that need to be completed along the way.
