This post concludes and recaps my series on uncontested or stipulated divorces in Melbourne, Florida. I felt it was necessary to write on this topic because spouses often do not consider the consequences of choosing a particular divorce action. The goal of my last several articles has been to provide helpful information about these options and under what circumstances they should be avoided. It is also my hope that these articles will assist people in making an informed decision when it comes time to select a family law attorney. If you need assistance, contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.
I have addressed several topics over my recent articles. Issues which I have analyzed include:
- The eligibility requirements and process for obtaining an uncontested divorce
- The consequences of choosing this action
- Why uncontested divorces often result in later court proceedings
- The benefits of retaining an attorney to handle your uncontested divorce
There are various reasons why Melbourne residents should have an understanding of these topics. First, not everyone is eligible to obtain an uncontested divorce. There are strict requirements that must be met before these actions can be pursued. Second, there may be permanent consequences to choosing this option. An uncontested divorce requires each party to be in complete agreeance on every term of the divorce. However, some of these terms may be more favorable to one party than the other. Third, this type of divorce can often lead to future court proceedings. If the parties come to a disagreement later on, other proceedings may be necessary to decide whether a modification is possible. Lastly, people should understand the importance of retaining an attorney to represent them in these actions. A lawyer can assist you in determining what the best option is for your particular situation. If you are considering a divorce, it is best to seek representation right away.
There are a wide-range of emotions associated with divorce. The stress involved can cause many people to make choices they wouldn’t ordinarily consider. However, it is crucial that one seeks the advice of counsel before making a decision that may have permanent effects.
