Uncontested Divorce

Divorce is never a happy time. A relationship has failed. For countless reasons, what seemed like a good idea at the time, now, is simply not going to work out. Marriage is never easy, and divorce is always a difficult time, but sometimes it is better to admit the error early on and move on, than to wait until you have children and a mortgage and things become really complex.

What Is An Uncontested Divorce?

When a couple has been married, but have no children younger than 18 years of age and have not acquired a great deal of property, Arkansas recognizes that the complexity of a marriage dissolution is reduced and permits a simple divorce in a straightforward legal proceeding.

The grounds for divorce generally need to be no-fault, and both parties must agree to all the terms of the divorce settlement. With a no-fault divorce the parties do not need to allege any wrongdoing and only need to sign an affidavit attesting that they have separated and have not cohabited for at least 18 months.

Basic Requirements For Uncontested Divorce

You also need to have been residents of Arkansas for at least 60 days. There are other documents relating to service of the documents and the parties must have an agreement drawn up that details how they will be dividing any property that they do own and any other relevant details.

Our lawyer at Havner Legal Services on the Go can go over these details and explain what needs to be covered by the divorce agreement. The advantage of using our services is that you learn from an experienced attorney what all the requirements are and you are assured that your divorce documents will be complete, accurate and properly filed. And best of all, it is all done at a reasonable cost, so you won't need to worry about unexpected attorney fees.
