Issues in an Uncontested Divorce

Clearly, for most couples, an uncontested divorce is a much better option, rather than fighting between the parties, both emotionally and financially. However, even though neither party is disagreeing as to how things should be divided or handled, this does not mean that you should not be without legal representation or legal counsel. If you have an uncontested divorce, the Tucson divorce lawyers at Goldstein & Scopellite, PC will review your agreement, your family situation and your assets and debts and we will make sure that your interests are protected, not only as to settlement made and we will ensure that the Decree of Dissolution or Order entered is drafted and./or was prepared correctly.

When a Divorce is Contested

Unfortunately, when a marriage is ending and the divorce is either not welcomed by one of the parties or there are issues to be resolved regarding disputes over your community property and debts and/or your children, there will be many hurdles to overcome during the divorce process and before a settlement of your marital issues can be reached and the parties can move forward.  These differences can be significant and can include disagreements over parenting time with your children, child support, legal decision- making regarding the children and division of eligible property and debts. In each of these areas of the law, there are specific requirements to determine how a division is obtained; how child support is determined and who will pay it; as to whether spousal maintenance is available or not; and as to what qualifies as community property or your community estate and who may end up paying the attorneys fees of the other party.
