Hi, this is Zachary Groves, I am the domestic litigation partner here at the Law Offices of James Crawford.
A question I routinely get from clients is whether or not they are eligible for an uncontested divorce. Oftentimes I encourage clients to get uncontested divorces, as it results in far less legal fees and far less emotional stress throughout the process. One key component that often is needed to get an uncontested divorce is a marital settlement agreement.
Marital settlement agreements are often 15-20 pages and cover all topics, including custody, property, alimony…everything. I strongly encourage clients to resolve their divorce cases via a marital settlement agreement in order to eliminate much of the stressors associated with divorce cases.
