San Bernardino Uncontested Divorce Lawyers

An uncontested divorce is when spouses create the terms of their divorce without a judge or court order. When two parties negotiate an agreement outside of court with regard to support, custody, and property division, there is no need to battle it out in the courtroom. As a result, an uncontested divorce is less expensive, faster, and often results in an agreement that both parties can live with.

How Does Uncontested Divorce Work?

The process can be as simple as filing the correct papers and getting the divorce finalized, to your two attorneys working together to hammer out a final agreement—which the court then approves. Your situation is unique, and how your divorce will play out has everything to do with whether you and your spouse can work together and get the job done outside of court.

That’s why having a lawyer can be a powerful asset. No matter how amicable the relationship between you and spouse may be, divorce has a way of bringing out the worst in people. Tensions run high and unresolved resentments come to the surface when we least expect it. Having an attorney ensures that you and your spouse stay focused on your goals without getting caught up in a legal battle.

There are cases in which uncontested divorce is impossible:

  • One party will not agree to fair compromises
  • One party makes unreasonable non-negotiable demands

Divorce lawyers can help even hostile couples negotiate a mutually beneficial agreement. Ultimately, uncontested divorce is about being able to create an agreement that works for everyone. Even in tense situations, spouses are capable of uncontested divorce—especially with good lawyers in their corners.

Who is Eligible for an Uncontested Divorce?

Each state has different requirements of who is eligible to file for an uncontested divorce. According to California law couples who wish to dissolve their divorce through an uncontested divorce must write and sign a marital settlement agreement prior to filing. This agreement must include:

  • An agreement on how your marital property will be divided
  • An agreement on if and how much spousal support will be paid
  • An agreement on child custody and child support

California also has resident requirements that are:

  • At least one spouse must have lived in the state of California for the last six months prior to filing for divorce
  • At least one spouse must have lived in the same county of filing for the last three months prior to filing for divorce
  • Both spouses must sign all paperwork

An attorney can help you write up this agreement to ensure that your best interest is protected. Have questions? Contact an experienced attorney from the Law Office of Michael R. Young to discuss your case today!
