Uncontested Divorce FLAT FEE Packages
You may have heard the phrase “uncontested divorce” or its other name of “desk divorce”. Both these terms refer to joint divorces where both parties look to end the marriage because it is not working, without any fights or bitterness.
Whereas with an uncontested divorce, one party files for divorce and the other signs in agreement to ending the marriage, a joint divorce is an even more cohesive experience. All decisions and all filing and documents are completed together and filed together.
Winning is nothing to do with it, as it is more about both parties moving onto their next chapters in life as easily and conflict-free as possible.
We can help you and your spouse file successfully for an uncontested divorce with our Uncontested Divorce FLAT FEE package.
