Contested/Uncontested Divorce

Your Divorce Is Unique. Your Legal Representation Should Be Too.

There is no one right way to go about getting a divorce. The best option for you will depend on any number of factors, including your goals, the situation surrounding the divorce and the assets you own.

The first step in any divorce is to obtain a clear picture of your legal rights and options. At your initial consultation with the divorce attorneys at Tisdale Middleton & Land, we will discuss with you the most important aspects of your divorce. If you wish to remain amicable and move quickly through the divorce process, we will take that into account as we move forward. If your main concern is protecting your legal rights, including the right to a fair division of assets, we will begin meticulously collecting financial information and preparing your case. If children are involved, we will do everything in our power to ensure their well-being is paramount.

Many clients ask us at this initial consultation about an uncontested divorce. If you wish to speak to us regarding your situation, call us at our office in Evans at 706-303-0734. We represent clients throughout Augusta and surrounding areas in Georgia.

The Difference Between A Contested And Uncontested Divorce

In an uncontested divorce, the parties agree to all important aspects of divorce prior to filing. In other words, the divorcing couple has already determined property division, child custody and child support, as well as all other additional aspects of a legal divorce. In a contested divorce, on the other hand, not every legal matter has been agreed to prior to filing.

When appropriate and if done correctly, an uncontested divorce can save time and money. However, too often someone will agree to an uncontested divorce simply to “get it over with,” without understanding the full implications of what they are agreeing to.

Divorce is as important financially as it is emotionally. Failing to account for how you will provide for your family or protect your retirement and other investments can lead to devastating financial consequences in the future.

It is also important to note that a contested divorce does not have to be contentious. If you still wish for an amicable split but simply cannot agree on important aspects of your divorce, a contested divorce can still accomplish your goals.
