An uncontested divorce is a more shortened process for couples who have already decided how the assets and debts will be divided, what support will be paid, if any, and what timesharing will occur with children, if any. Unlike the contested divorce, spouses may waive the requirement of exchanging mandatory disclosures but they must still exchange Financial Affidavits.
So, why do you need an attorney? An experienced attorney will make sure your interests are protected relating to more complex assets such as pensions and business investments and will assist with smoothing any complications that arise along the way, thereby reducing stress on you. An attorney will also make sure your child support is accurately calculated, and that you have been given credit for any expense payments that serve to reduce or increase child support under Florida law. Finally, some spouses believe that they are in full agreement until they speak with an attorney and then realize certain issues that had not been thoroughly discussed and resolved.
