In the vast majority of divorce actions spouses resolve their issues through an agreement either prior to or sometime after engaging in contested litigation. This resulting written settlement agreement is typically called a Marital Settlement Agreement. In most cases it just makes sense to do this as opposed to spending time and money, and then having a stranger (a busy Judge) impose decisions upon you and your family. When there is little or no disagreement between spouses very early on in the divorce process you can have a classic uncontested divorce. Frequently, Marital Settlement Agreements are signed even before the accompanying divorce action (lawsuit) is filled with the court system. Often times the cost of these predictable uncontested divorces can be quoted using a “flat fee” which decreases the total cost of this sometimes expensive process for both spouses. In many cases the flat fee uncontested divorce is the best way to dissolve a marriage. Many of the divorces handled by The Anton Legal Group are uncontested, flat fee divorces.
