Documenting Your Agreement on All Divorce Issues Under Florida Law
Some people hesitate to consult with a lawyer when they think they can get a low-cost, low-stress uncontested divorce. Not only are they interested in saving the legal fee, but they’re also concerned that the attorney they meet with might stir up disagreements and contested issues where none exist.
At Moraitis & Raimondi, LLP, we understand this hesitation. Nevertheless, we think you owe it to yourself to get legal advice before signing off on a stipulated divorce settlement.
Why You Need Tailored Advice About Your Uncontested Divorce
When you work with our firm, we will conduct a thorough review of your proposed uncontested divorce. We won’t go out of our way to provoke disputes — we don’t need the business that badly. Instead, we’ll make sure that you understand what you’re gaining and what you’re giving up. When you have a solid idea of your rights and responsibilities under Florida divorce law, you’ll be able to sign off on an uncontested divorce agreement with confidence.
Sometimes we’ll find a detail in your proposed settlement documents that represents an unintended concession to the other spouse. Once in a while we’ll spot illegal terms, such as a waiver of child support rights or a stipulated reduction of support obligations. When we find a provision that you might want to reconsider, we won’t rush you off into a full-blown contested divorce. We’ll show you your options for revisiting the issue and resolving the problem in a new draft of your settlement agreement.
How Long Will It Take?
Our family law practice supports the goals of people who want to dissolve their marriage on amicable terms and without unnecessary expense or stress. We can usually help clients get a final decree of divorce on an uncontested basis within one month of a first consultation. Along the way, we’ll also make sure that you’re not making basic mistakes, like agreeing to the division of separate property or committing to alimony terms without a good understanding of your legal rights.
Our attorneys have decades of family law experience, and we know how to advance your objective for a streamlined dissolution of your marriage while protecting your immediate and long-term interests.
