Uncontested Divorce: A Less Stressful, More Efficient Option

Divorce isn't always a litigious, emotionally fueled battle. For many couples, the decision to divorce is mutual and the process can be completed in a respectful and calm manner.

At The Law Offices of George A. Martinez, we help individuals in Placer County, California, with uncontested divorces avoid lengthy, stressful and expensive legal proceedings, obtain divorce decrees and move forward with their lives.

Is My Divorce Uncontested?

Do you and your spouse agree on the following?

  • How you will share custody of your children
  • How property and debt will be divided
  • Whether one will pay the other alimony, and the amount to be paid
  • How much child support each party is required to pay

If you and your spouse have already reached an agreement on these items, or are committed to working out an agreement, you may have an uncontested divorce.

At The Law Offices of George A. Martinez, we will guide you through the entire divorce process. Attorney George Martinez will handle all aspects of your divorce, including:

  • Advising you on the law and your rights and responsibilities
  • Assisting in negotiations between you and your spouse
  • Drafting all necessary agreements regarding property settlements, custody and visitation plans, and child support and alimony arrangements

Once formal agreements have been reached and drafted, Mr. Martinez will prepare and file all legal documents, submit them to the court and represent you at any legal hearings.

Stay in Control During Divorce

During a traditional contested divorce, a judge makes all of the big decisions — where your children live, how much time you spend with them, whether you pay your ex-spouse support and the amount. During an uncontested divorce, spouses work together to reach an agreement that benefits everybody. You get to decide what your life looks like after divorce.
