Non-Contested “Kitchen Table”
If a divorce is truly “non-contested” all matters have been settled and agreed upon by the parties before papers are filed with the court. The outline of a settlement is developed by both parties, with one taking it to a lawyer who prepares the legal documents necessary to submit it to the court.
How Do I Know If A Non-Contested Divorce Is Right For Me?
Non-contested divorce is most appropriate for marriages where there are few assets, there is a low level of conflict, there is an equal understanding of financial situation, the parties are able to negotiate, and there is a strong desire to keep costs low.
