Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce is one in which you and your spouse have reached full agreement on all divorce issues before you file for divorce.  In some cases, you and your spouse don’t need to hire attorneys who are going to stir the pot when you have resolved all of your issues and know you are ready to just separate amicably.

I understand that it can be intimidating and overwhelming to fill out all the paperwork, make sure you’ve covered every issue, and appear in court to address the judge in Kenosha County or Racine County without the help of someone who knows what they are doing.  You know you agree on everything, but you want someone else to navigate the system for you during this already difficult time.

In those scenarios, while I do have to make sure you have been fully advised on all issues and have fully considered all of your options under the law, and while I do have to advise your spouse that they have every right to hire their own attorney and I am not their attorney, I am happy to help you navigate the legal system so that you can get an amicable, uncontested divorce without breaking the bank or dragging things out longer than they have to be.

I offer an uncontested divorce flat fee package for those with children and for those without children.  Those options are available to you upon request.  You must make a consultation appointment and pay the $75 consultation fee, but if you hire me your consultation fee will be credited toward the flat-fee package purchase, as a consult is included in flat-fee packages.

This option is available for those whose spouses are unrepresented.  There is also a package available for those whose spouses are represented.

The traditional hourly rate with an up-front deposit toward fees is also available for those who prefer that option.  Rates are not published, but are available by request.

Successful outcomes

Almost all of my uncontested divorce cases are resolved amicably and remain uncontested.  It does occasionally happen that a case must convert to a contested divorce.  The outcome for each divorce is unique and depends on both parties, not just you – but your spouse and whether or not they hire an attorney themselves.
