Offering Guidance For Little Rock Uncontested Divorce Cases

In the past, most divorce cases were treated as knocked-down, dragged-out lengthy affairs where each spouse would battle to be declared the "winner." Times have changed, and many couples are now willing to work together to reach an agreement that both parties can live with. This is referred to as an uncontested divorce.

Understanding Uncontested Divorce

Simply put, an uncontested divorce is possible when two spouses are able to agree on all divorce-related matters, from matters involving property division to issues of child custody. When divorcing couples are able to set aside their differences and reach an agreement, there is no need to go through court and endure traditional divorce litigation. Avoiding court often results in significant savings of time and money, as well as keeping the parties on friendlier terms.

For over 20 years, Senior Attorney, Vickie Lynn Cochran, Attorney at Law, has helped numerous couples in Little Rock and surrounding areas with uncontested divorces.

If you and your spouse are in agreement on all of the major issues, you may wonder why it is even necessary to hire a lawyer. The fact is, having experienced legal representation on your side will help ensure that your interests remain protected and that all necessary documents are properly prepared and filed with the court.

Overlooking Important Matters

Couples who decide to take a do-it-yourself approach may overlook important, but less obvious, issues, such as the division of retirement assets, or they may fail to take into account certain tax considerations. In addition, having legal counsel in your corner will help ensure that any agreement you enter into is valid and binding.

Finally, it is possible that negotiations may break down for any number of reasons and it may be necessary to resolve your disputes in court. If this happens, you will want an attorney who was there from the beginning and who understands the nuances of your case.
