Tulsa Uncontested Divorces
Uncontested divorces cost less and take less time than contested divorces, but only if they are done right the first time. If you and your spouse both want a divorce, and agree on the terms, an uncontested divorce may be right for you. An uncontested divorce is a good option for couples without children, who have a small amount of property, and who agree on how to divide what they have. With that said, even couples with children may qualify as long as they agree on custody, parenting time, child support, and property division.
In an uncontested divorce, one party files the papers, called the petition, to start the divorce case. The other spouse receives the papers, but doesn’t need to answer or appear in court. Boeheim Freeman Law has experienced divorce attorneys who can easily guide the filing spouse (the petitioner) through the process, prepare the necessary documents, including the divorce decree or judgment that contains the terms of the parties’ agreement. Our attorneys are skilled at keeping it simple and explaining every detail until all parties feel comfortable they understand everything. However, for ethical reasons the other party, called the respondent, may want to have another attorney look over the paperwork, but it is not required.
