Divorce decree with gavelThis is the first post in a series which will discuss the process of obtaining an uncontested divorce in Melbourne, Florida. I am writing on this topic because many parties may benefit from going through the uncontested process. It is also important to understand, however, that this process is not for everyone. The goal of my next several articles will be to provide information which will help those seeking an uncontested divorce to understand their options. It is also my hope that this information will assist people in making an informed decision when they are choosing a family law attorney. Contact my office today to speak with a lawyer if you require assistance.

I will be addressing several topics over the course of this series. Issues which I will analyze include:

  • Florida’s eligibility requirements and process for obtaining an uncontested divorce
  • Why choosing an uncontested divorce may or may not be in your best interests
  • Why uncontested divorces can result in subsequent court proceedings
  • The benefits of retaining an attorney to handle your uncontested divorce

There are several reasons why an individual seeking a divorce should have a firm understanding of these issues. First, an uncontested divorce is not an option for every couple. Second, the stress involved with choosing to file for divorce can lead to settling for unfavorable terms which a party will later regret. Third, without taking the terms of an uncontested divorce into careful consideration, parties may find themselves back in court in the near future. Lastly, there are both pros and cons to this type of action.

I cannot stress enough that you should contact a Melbourne uncontested divorce lawyer immediately if you are considering going through this process. It is imperative that you speak with counsel before making a decision that could potentially result in irreversible damage. Contact my office today to speak with an attorney.
