Utah Uncontested Divorce Lawyer
A divorce doesn’t have to be a nasty battle between the parties. Most couples who decide to end a marriage will work out the details of alimony, child support, and property division on their own. Uncontested divorce is the way most people choose to get divorced because it is the most affordable and reasonable solution. If you and your spouse can agree on all the particulars of the divorce (i.e., alimony, child support, custody, property division, etc.), than the cost and time it will take to see the divorce finalized is greatly reduced.
Should I get a lawyer or do it myself?
You do not have to hire a lawyer in order to get divorced in Utah. However, even an uncontested divorce that may seem simple will require filing many documents and likely at least one appearance before a judge will be required. The uncontested divorce attorneys at SLF can help you deal with the legal issues surrounding your divorce, issues you might miss if you tried to do it yourself. Also, in all but the shortest and simplest of marriages, there will be an item or two whose ownership needs to change, the Utah divorce attorneys at SLF are set up to help you deal with that as well.
A Utah divorce lawyer at SLF is particularly important when you and your spouse have been married for several years, and your ownership of family assets has become entangled. It’s also important to get help if you and your spouse have owned one or more assets that have increased in value, you may be facing some tax issues that you need to handle carefully.
What is the process?
The first thing you need to realize if you are hiring SLF as your uncontested divorce lawyer is that the lawyer you get to do your uncontested divorce cannot represent both of you. The lawyer will need to know at the start wich of you is the client and which is not.
The process is usually simple if you have an attorney on board to walk you through it. At SLF, we sit down with each client and discuss all of the relevant issues. The attorney advises the client on the all of the relevant issues and the client goes over any concerns. The attorney and client put together a game plan. The client gathers all of the necessary documentation and the attorney puts all of the necessary paperwork together. The client than reviews all of the documents with the attorney and if everything is ok the attorney will file the paperwork. Sometimes the court will require at least one hearing and in some cases the court will simply grant the divorce petition after all of the requirements have been met.
How much does it cost?
At SLF, we offer flat rates for uncontested divorces. This means that you pay a fixed amount. We normally do not charge by the hour for unconested divorces. This means you get a top notch divorce attorney at a small fixed rate. The amount of the fixed fee depends on the specifics of your situation. Assuming there is nothing extra special about your divorce case that requires additional documentation and court appearances, we normally charge an affordable flat rate which includes all of the filing fees and everything necessary to get your divorce finalized. We offer flexible fee payment structures.
