Uncontested Divorce in Minnesota
Jeddeloh Snyder Stommes’ Attorneys are Experts in Minnesota divorce laws and helping you get what is fair
What is an Uncontested Divorce?
An uncontested divorce is straightforward. In an uncontested divorce, both parties have agreed on the terms of the divorce, including, but not limited to, the division of assets and debts, child support, child custody, spousal maintenance (formerly referred to as alimony), and parenting time.
Compromise is key when approaching divorce. Both parties must understand that working together is often the best solution: the better the communication and compromise, the more favorable the outcome for the parties and their child/children.
If both parties are amicable, the chances of a quick resolution are good. Competent counsel can resolve many issues that complicate a divorce, and costly drawn-out negotiations and court hearings can be avoided.

If my Divorce is Uncontested, Do I Still Need a Lawyer?
Even when there is an agreement on the terms of a divorce, it is still wise to have an attorney help you through drafting and filing divorce papers. Uncontested divorces should involve lower costs than contested divorces because both parties agree. Therefore, there is less to be worked out. Having an attorney in an uncontested divorce can help reduce the stress involved when getting a divorce. Having an advocate on your side allows you to get through the complex divorce process.
