Knowledgeable Woburn Attorney Helps Streamline Marriage Dissolutions
Attentive Massachusetts counselor assists clients with uncontested divorce
Ending a marriage is rarely easy, but the divorce process does not need to be drawn-out and contentious. At Greco Law, PLLC in Woburn, I represent clients in the Boston area, including Middlesex, Essex and Suffolk counties, in all aspects of uncontested divorce and am highly skilled at using this non-adversarial approach to efficiently secure positive resolutions for my clients. Having decades of experience, I can counsel you through this process and negotiate settlement agreements that are fair and appropriate. If you want to explore whether an uncontested divorce is a good option, have questions about the legal requirements or need your divorce agreement reviewed, I will fully assess your situation and take the necessary steps to protect your interests.
When should you seek an uncontested divorce?
In order to legally end a marriage, terms on property division, child custody, child support, alimony and divorce grounds must be resolved. For spouses who are able to agree on these points and willing to file a joint petition, an uncontested divorce can be a productive choice. More specifically, if both sides consent to a no-fault divorce and have no disputed issues, this simplified process may be used. While the process may seem straightforward, it is still important to consult with an attorney to avoid problems or errors. I have extensive experience handling these cases and will customize my representation to meet the needs of your situation.
What are the advantages of an uncontested divorce?
Uncontested divorce offers the opportunity to avoid the expense, time and uncertainty that is typical of a litigated divorce. Uncontested divorces:
- are less expensive
- can be completed in 90 to 120 days
- give spouses more control over the outcome
- keep private issues out of the courtroom
Regardless of whether your case is simple or complex, I can effectively address your issues and concerns.
What is the legal process to pursue this type of divorce?
While an uncontested divorce may be less involved than a contested dissolution, the legal process still involves several complex steps that can be difficult to navigate without the help of an attorney. Some of the key requirements in these cases include:
- Completing and filing all necessary documents, including the divorce/separation agreement, financial statements, child support forms, child custody affidavits and the joint petition for divorce.
- A hearing before the judge where the court will decide whether there are grounds for divorce, if the divorce/separation agreement is reasonable and fair, and that both parties understand the terms and nature of the agreement.
- The court issues a judgment approving the divorce, which becomes final and irrevocable 120 days from the date of the hearing.
I understand how emotional and overwhelming divorce can be, contested or not, and will be a reliable and responsive guide throughout the dissolution process.
