Uncontested Divorce in Virginia
Divorce is often among the most difficult and emotional events in a person’s life, but that doesn’t mean it has to result in a long, costly court case. Typically, a traditional divorce involves each person filing legal paperwork that is then adjudicated in court over many painful sessions – resulting in many large legal bills. When it’s over, the judge decides all contested issues, whether the couple likes what is decided or not.
Many couples will choose to forgo that and opt for an uncontested divorce, in which they agree not to dispute such issues as child custody, division of property, or support payments. If you and your spouse already agree on these issues and would like to proceed with a divorce that is quick and affordable, an uncontested divorce may be for you.
