How Uncontested Divorces Work

You can file for an uncontested divorce when you and your partner agree on the terms of your separation. This means you both amicably reached decisions on such matters as how to divide your property and how to care for any children affected by the divorce. The courts do not have to intervene and make these decisions for you.

My name is Barry W. Switzer and I have assisted clients throughout Aurora and surrounding areas to complete uncontested divorces. This process avoids bringing the matter to court and eliminates additional litigation fees.

Costs And Compassion

One of the biggest concerns for clients during a divorce is cost. In order to reduce this burden, I always strive to help couples negotiate a separation agreement. This document lets the pair set out their own terms of separation, such as the division of shared property and spousal support.

With my experience, helping former spouses decide how to divide their own assets eliminates:

  • Litigating the matter in court
  • Waiting period between filings
  • Costs involved in a divorce proceeding

Divorces can be very emotional situations, even when they are uncontested. I understand how delicate the breakdown of a marriage is for everyone involved. As a lawyer, my goal is to be sensitive to your needs while making sure your interests are always at the forefront of any negotiations.

Special Circumstances

Everyone's situation is unique and requires careful attention to their specific needs. Some circumstances, such as mental competency or if one of the parties is leaving the province or country, require additional considerations.

I can provide you with legal advice and options on how to approach special circumstances that may arise. I will advise you on how to approach issues of mental health or serving partners that are no longer in the vicinity. Whatever the circumstance may be, I will provide you with options on how we can proceed with completing the divorce process.
