My spouse and I agree on all the terms of our divorce and just need some help in filing the proper paperwork. What steps do we need to take next?
While I am not licensed to practice law in your state and am unable to give you legal advice, I can give you some general observations on this issue based on the jurisdiction where I practice.
Where I do practice in Virginia, if you are able to come to an agreement on all issues regarding child custody, support, and division of assets you can proceed with an uncontested divorce.
While this may sound simple, there is a lot of statutory language that must be included when children are involved. It is important to understand the statutory language and how it must be incorporated into any agreement and final order of divorce or your risk you divorce not being granted.
Divorce is very jurisdiction-specific and requires a specialized knowledge of local law. For these reasons I would suggest you contact an attorney who specializes in family law matters in your jurisdiction.
Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than tips on these matters, so please contact an attorney in your jurisdiction to obtain specific advice as to the laws of your state and how they impact your case.
