When both parties are able to agree on matters in a divorce, the process can be very seamless and cause minimal stress. Even in situations where both parties are able to agree on the terms of the agreement, it is still important you work with an attorney during the process to ensure the paperwork is properly drafted.
To be classified as an uncontested divorce, both parties must sign a settlement agreement thereby settling all issues in the divorce. After the complaint and settlement agreement are filed with the court, the parties must wait 31 days before a judge will sign a final order completing the divorce process. We typically take uncontested divorces on a flat fee.
