A Reality Check: Uncontested Divorce in Cumming, Georgia

At our law firm, we do our best to help our clients in uncontested divorces to come to a reasonable settlement. More often than not, what initially appears to one spouse as an uncontested divorce later develops into a contested case. Due to these risks, our clients choose our experienced attorneys to handle their uncontested divorce.

Clients typically believe an uncontested divorce can be done rather quickly. In reality, even the most amenable parties may have difficulty agreeing on all of the issues that must be addressed. For those reasons, in our experience in Forsyth County, Georgia, uncontested divorces may take anywhere from one month from the date of service (in order to allow the defendant to file an answer if he or she so desires) up to three or four months – particularly if the case involves minor children or debts such as an underwater mortgage.

Because of the litany of issues spouses face during a separation – child custody, visitation, child support, alimony, equitable division of assets (financial, personal property, real estate, vehicles, etc.), and pre-marital assets – there are many areas for disagreements to cause additional hardship in your undoubtedly strained relationship with your spouse.

We are also aware of the troubling financial realities many couples face with underwater homes, medical debts, and credit card debts which may become obstacles to settlement. We will guide you from a legal and pragmatic standpoint as you and your spouse negotiate an agreeable resolution.

We recognize there are many issues which may prevent the parties from coming to an agreement. If your case becomes contested, understand we work efficiently to protect your best interests while moving your case forward.
