The Importance of Counsel in an Uncontested Divorce

Deeper Understanding. Better Solutions.
couple counseling in the middle of argument

At the time of divorce, parties experience a bevy of emotions at many levels. Routinely, the same tone and tenor which led the parties to divorce causes them to retain counsel to agree upon final terms that are incorporated into a Judgement of Divorce.

In certain cases, the parties are able to agree upon the terms of their divorce. While this may serve as a relief, it does not obviate the need for experienced counsel and professional advice.

The Law Offices of William R. Pike have ranked among the very finest Dallas GA divorce lawyers for over twenty five years. With a specialized focus in family law, the attorneys at the Law Offices of William R. Pike possess the experience to successfully navigate clients from the preliminary stages of divorce through its ultimate disposition.

It is a common misnomer that counsel is not required if the parties have decided to proceed with an uncontested divorce. The theory is that the terms and conditions of the divorce have been agreed upon and that “only paperwork” is required. Nothing could be further from the truth.

In fact, an uncontested divorce can sometimes be more complicated than a contested divorce. In a contested divorce, the parties retain counsel from the outset and are advised of their rights and remedies on day one, making important strategic decisions with their attorneys early on. The attorneys then ensure that their clients’ best interests are advocated and protected throughout the process.

In an uncontested divorce, the parties often are unaware of their legal rights and remedies, sometimes bargaining away vital entitlements to child support, maintenance, child custody or visitation without even realizing the impact of their decisions.
