Why You May Still Want To Retain A Divorce Attorney For An Uncontested Divorce

Even if you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse are agreeing to your own terms for your divorce, it may still be in your best interest for the two of you to retain a divorce attorney. By hiring an attorney together, you can get your divorce finalized without any legal battles and have the following benefits.

Can Carefully Handle Division Of Debt And Property

It is important, even within a divorce where the two parties are getting along, that the proper documentation is put in place so the division of property and debt will not be able to be disputed in the future. You would not want to find yourself confused by the terms of the divorce because you misunderstood something and neither would your soon-to-be ex-spouse.

Therefore, you want everything that has been agreed upon regarding who pays what and who will remain the owner of what to be placed on paper and filed with the courthouse. This way, it can be later referenced if there is any confusion. A divorce attorney will be able to do that for you. Also, you may want to make sure that you are scheduling your meetings with the divorce attorney so you can both be there.

Ensures All Papers Are Filed

There are many documents that have to be filed when it comes to a divorce. So instead of you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse trying to guess which forms you need and how you are supposed to fill them out properly, you will want to allow an attorney to assist you. This is important in order to ensure that your uncontested divorce is not held up any longer than it needs to be. Once your attorney files all of the appropriate papers and everything is signed by the judge, you can move on to sell property, relocate, change your last name back to your original name, and basically begin to create a new life for yourself.

Make sure that when you are calling for a consultation with the divorce attorney that you are explaining that he or she will be retained by the both of you, as your divorce is uncontested and you want to work together to get the legal portion of the separation completed as soon as possible. Also, be sure to start writing down any questions or concerns you might have so they can be addressed when you finally meet with the divorce attorney.
