Handling Uncontested Divorce Matters Since 1975
In an uncontested divorce, both parties agree on all the issues surrounding the divorce, including property division, money, child custody and child support. This is a less expensive form of divorce that saves time and eliminates much of the trauma associated with the end of a marriage. Attorney Doug Carter has more than 35 years of legal experience and is a Rule 31 Listed Mediator who can assist you in coming to agreement on the terms of your divorce, saving you the time and money of going to court and giving you more control over the results.
Protecting Clients' Rights in Contested Divorce Matters
If both parties are unable to come to an agreement on how to split assets, or on child support and custody issues, it's important that you have a qualified attorney who will work to protect your rights and best interests. Doug will help you negotiate the terms through divorce mediation, but is an experienced trial attorney who will stand up for you in court if it should come to that.
