Deer Park Uncontested Divorce Lawyer

Experienced & Compassionate Legal Counsel to Walk You Through This Trying Time

When a marriage comes to an end, if the two spouses can manage to cooperate with each other, the divorce process can be relatively simplified by pursuing an uncontested divorce. Often relying on a resolution through the collaborative divorce process, uncontested divorces aim to solve the crucial issues without the need for court intervention.

It is important to remember, however, that just because a divorce is uncontested, it does not mean that the property and responsibilities are necessarily being divided fairly. If you are going through a divorce –uncontested or contested– be sure to contact us as soon as possible.

Careful Considerations During Uncontested Divorce

While it is true that an uncontested divorce will generally be more less costly and less stressful than an uncontested divorce, you still need to have your rights protected. If, you choose to have your case mediated, you and your current spouse will meet with a mediator to discuss various aspects of your divorce. It is during this procedure that you must be aware of the extent of your own assets and how to fairly distribute your responsibilities, either familial or financial.

We will do all we can to get you a fair agreement regarding:

When you and your spouse have agreed on the terms, you will both provide your signatures to finalize the divorce. If a dispute arises during the uncontested divorce that cannot be resolved through these methods, you may have to consider going to court to litigate the issues.

Put a Board Certified Deer Park Divorce Attorney On Your Side

Entering an uncontested divorce can be a precarious situation even if it does not escalate to courtroom hearings. Both you and your spouse will want to resolve things peacefully, but they might not be aware that what they are asking for is too much or inconsiderate of your own needs.

Protecting your rights requires familiarity with the law and litigation that only a certified legal specialist can provide. Attorney Slate and Attorney Shailey are Board-Certified family law attorneys through the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, an honor granted to only a few lawyers across the state.
