Get Help From a Divorce Lawyer — Starting at Just $975
In Massachusetts, there are two kinds of divorces — contested (1A) divorces and uncontested (1B) divorces. A contested divorce is one where the parties cannot agree on the terms of the divorce, such as the financial issues or how to handle their children. In some cases, the parties cannot agree on the value of specific assets, yet in others one of the spouses may allege the child support obligor is intentionally under-employed and motivated to lower his or her support payment.
A divorce is uncontested when the partners seeking to terminate their marriage agree on each and every item and issue related to the ending of their marriage. This does not necessarily mean that the divorce is amicable, but that disputes between both parties were resolved outside of the courtroom.
An uncontested divorce is win-win for both spouses
An uncontested divorce is usually the preferred situation for the parties involved. The process reduces legal fees, takes less time, reduces stress, and protects the children from the toxic after-effects of a contested divorce battle.
Flat-Fee Divorce Attorneys — focused exclusively on uncontested divorce
When you and your spouse are committed to working together to resolve your differences, our team takes a collaborative and mediation approach to helping each of you find your way to a middle-ground position that is acceptable to both.
Once an issue is agreed to by both of you, we move to the next issue. This new approach of working toward agreement with your spouse offers improvements to the old adversarial system where both spouses are pitted against each other in court, retaining expensive attorneys on each side.
Statistics show that cases that settle out of court, using non-adversarial methods, cost thousands of dollars less than hiring two attorneys and proceeding all the way to trial.
Here's how we work...
Flat-Fee Divorce Attorneys offers a wide range of uncontested divorce services, including full legal representation, self-help legal services, our divorce paperwork service, consultation and "Second Opinion" advice, and additional services such as premium parenting plans, expedited divorces, and missing spouse divorces.
Once you've agreed to get started, clients are required to complete a simple divorce homework assignment, execute an agreement with our firm, and meet with an attorney to review the required court documents.
