What is an Auburn Uncontested Divorce?
An uncontested divorce is when there is an agreement already reached at the time the case is filed. Since an agreement concerning all marital issues such as custody, child support, and division of property has been reached there are no contested issues for a judge to resolve. Therefore, the judge assigned your case only has to approve your agreement. Once they approve it, then a divorce decree is entered without a hearing. In an uncontested divorce, your agreement can usually be approved without having to go to court.
That is why divorce attorneys in Auburn can charge lower flat fees for an uncontested divorce because it is mostly just paperwork and there are no hearings in most cases. When you pay us the attorney fees then we prepare and send you your uncontested divorce documents for both of you to sign and return to us to file.
You also must pay the filing fee in order for us to file the case for you. Once it is filed, the judge must wait thirty days to sign your divorce decree. Since there are no issues for the judge to resolve, there is generally no need to go to court at any point in the process. Call us today at (334) 782-9938 for a cheap divorce in Auburn.
