Do You Need a Divorce Lawyer for an Uncontested Divorce?

Rachel Rizzieri Feist | April 3, 2024

An uncontested divorce might seem like a quick, rubber-stamp process that you can handle yourself, without an attorney. But the truth is that it’s still a good idea to have a lawyer who can help to ensure that everything is handled properly and your rights are protected, even if you’re seeking an uncontested divorce.

What Is an Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce is a divorce in which both spouses have already agreed on all of the possible areas of contention. This includes how property will be divided, how child custody will be divided and scheduled, and the details of any child support or spousal support payments.

Why Would You Need a Lawyer for an Uncontested Divorce?

Even if you’ve worked out everything with your spouse, getting a divorce is a complex legal process, and it’s best to have an experienced attorney to make sure that you fully understand everything. The outcome of your divorce will affect the rest of your life, and during this difficult time, emotions may cloud your thinking, so it’s valuable to have a trusted attorney on your side to help you. Your attorney can also make sure that all of the proper documentation is submitted and all of the correct paperwork is filed, resulting in a divorce decree that is legally enforceable and protects your rights.
