Uncontested Divorce in Maryland
Legal Representation for Uncontested Divorce
An uncontested divorce is one in which there is no dispute regarding custody, property, finances or other issues. Uncontested divorces are usually very private and allow you to end your marriage with dignity. An uncontested divorce can save you time and money if there are no legal disputes involved.
- The greatest advantage of an uncontested divorce is that it is the least expensive divorce available. There is little paperwork involved, and it can be processed very quickly.
- An uncontested divorce is not for everyone. If there is domestic violence involved, it is usually not a good idea since only one party will have legal representation. An uncontested divorce works best when both parties can openly communicate with each other.
How it Works
- In an uncontested divorce, legal representation is only afforded to one party. The lawyer will explain the process in a private meeting before the signing of legal documents. The papers are not signed until both parties are in agreement with the terms of the divorce.
