An uncontested divorce is when you and your spouse can agree on how the children, marital home, assets, and debts can be handled. I recently had a new client come in for an uncontested divorce intake and tell me, "So I heard an uncontested divorce takes around a year to finish up right now because of the pandemic." I was shocked. This really comes down to one thing: Who is your attorney handling your uncontested divorce?
At Kate Johnson Law, we can accommodate any comfort level, even if that means everything is done over the phone, email, or mail. The process for an uncontested divorce includes signing the client up, filing the initial divorce papers with the court, sending the papers to the client's spouse to sign stating they are in agreeance to the terms of the divorce, and submitting the final paperwork to the court. The time period all depends on how responsive you and your attorney are to each other. At Kate Johnson Law, as long as you are reachable to our calls and emails, your uncontested divorce can be finalized in 4-6 weeks.
