Uncontested Divorces

Each couple is different. Just because a marriage is over does not mean that fighting in court is mandatory. It is often possible for couples to work out end-of-marriage decisions themselves without depending on a judge to divide property or assign child custody.

At our Merritt Island law firm - The Law Office of Brian W. Hurd - we represent clients in uncontested divorces and other family law matters. Under Florida law, courts consider a divorce to be "uncontested" when couples decide on all major issues without fighting about them in court. These issues include:

  • Child custody and visitation (also called parenting time)
  • Child support
  • Alimony (also called spousal support or spousal maintenance)
  • Division of property and debt

Deciding these issues with your spouse outside of court is a good way to cut costs, save time and reduce stress. The process goes most smoothly when you choose to get an experienced lawyer involved - an attorney who is invested in the idea of uncontested divorce, and who can help you save money and time by making smart decisions.

In our law practice, this is our goal. We truly work to protect our clients' interests by guiding them through the uncontested divorce process. We know that when issues are resolved calmly and rationally, uncontested divorces can be resolved in a relatively short period of time - sometimes as short as a month.

We begin the process by talking with you about the issues you and your spouse face. In many uncontested divorces, couples have been married only for a short time and have no children, so they do not have many decisions to make.
