Schaefer Law



When a couple is divorcing and cannot agree on the issues related to children, finances, and other aspects, the divorce becomes a “contested divorce”. Oftentimes, contested divorces can take a great deal of energy and time to resolve. Without mutual agreement on all issues, a judge will assign the matter for trial, where the court will render a decision based on the facts and circumstances presented before the court. In these cases especially, it is important to retain an experienced divorce attorney to ensure you are informed on all aspects of your divorce and ensure that your interest is protected at all times by an experienced professional.

The wellbeing of our clients is always our primary concern, and we work diligently to provide practical legal guidance and strategic advice while staying focused on each client’s needs, goals, and circumstance.

Uncontested divorces can be much simpler and quicker to obtain than a contested divorce. This type of divorce process can occur when every aspect of the divorce is agreed upon between spouses and there is no dispute over any issue, so one spouse cannot be contesting the divorce and both must enter the divorce willingly.

The uncontested process is often best for individuals with minimal assets and no children. However, any couple may enter an uncontested divorce as long as an overall resolution of the issues has been reached. If you and your spouse agree on issues related to child custody, parental visitation, child support, spousal support, property division, and the division of liability, an uncontested divorce may be a possible option.

Every person and every family is unique, so it is always a good idea to consult with an experienced divorce attorney to gain support and information on the available options, regardless of whether or not you and your spouse agree on the terms of the divorce.

At Schaefer Law, our team has extensive knowledge, understanding, and experience in divorce law and the necessary steps to take for a successful, uncontested divorce. When meeting with our team, we’ll evaluate your situation and determine if an uncontested divorce is the best course of action for your circumstances. If it is not, a contested divorce may be in your best interests, our attorneys can advise you on what you can expect from that process, instead.
