No one walks down the aisle hoping the marriage will end in divorce. But sometimes divorce is the best option. In an uncontested or low-conflict divorce, both spouses agree to work together towards a fair settlement surrounding issues like child support and the division of assets. If that’s what you want for your divorce, Pepitone Family Law, with offices in Lawrenceville, Georgia (Gwinnett Country) is here to help. Here’s what you should know about filing an uncontested divorce.

Requirements of an Uncontested Divorce

For a divorce to be considered “uncontested,” both spouses must agree to the divorce and be willing to reach an agreement either on their own or with the help of a third party. The requirements for an uncontested divorce vary from state to state, which is why it’s so important to seek the advice of an attorney who specializes in family law. In general, for a divorce to remain uncontested, both spouses have to be in agreement on issues such as:

  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Division of real property
  • Vehicles
  • Businesses
  • Financial assets
  • Retirement accounts
  • Personal property

The biggest benefit to an uncontested divorce is that it helps minimize the conflict between you and your spouse, which is in your best interest, and the best interest of your children. Uncontested divorces are usually faster as well, saving you time and money. Finding common ground on all of these complicated issues while you’re in the middle of a divorce can be difficult, however, which is where an amicable divorce professional comes in. Our founder, family law attorney Ashley Pepitone, is so committed to helping her clients divorce through uncontested divorce, that she has been certified as an Amicable Divorce Professional.

Amicable Divorce: Ideal Uncontested Divorce

Simply put, the amicable divorce process is ethical, low-conflict, and child-centered, which makes it ideal for anyone seeking an uncontested divorce, if you have not been able to agree on all of the terms without the help of third party professionals. If that’s you, make sure you select an attorney who’s been vetted by the Amicable Divorce Network (ADN). The ADN is the only global network consisting entirely of professionals, including attorneys, financial advisors and experts who have been selected for their experience, commitment to fair billing practices, and emphasis on a resolution-oriented practice. While many attorneys can assist with an uncontested divorce, not all attorneys have been vetted by the ADN.

Lawrenceville attorney Ashley Pepitone is a Certified Amicable Divorce Professional and holds two additional specialty designations from the ADN in child-centered divorces and gray divorces (divorces that involve older spouses). Rely on the team at Pepitone Family Law to guide you through an uncontested divorce with intelligence, compassion, transparency, and assertiveness.
