Helping you reach cost-effective resolutions to property and custody issues
When a divorce is uncontested, the divorcing couple presents a signed settlement agreement to the court for its approval. Provided the agreement meets all legal standards, it becomes the basis for the judge’s divorce decree. The couple saves time and expense, and exercises greater control over the terms of the divorce than they would if they left issues up to the judge. However, whether the couple is ultimately better off depends on the quality of their settlement agreement. Is it comprehensive? Is it fair? Is it workable? An experienced uncontested divorce attorney in Salt Lake City can help you negotiate a comprehensive divorce settlement and ensure you get a fair deal. Intermountain Legal crafts workable divorce settlements to fit your unique family, career and financial circumstances.
Taking your “agreement in principle” to a successful conclusion
When couples agree on the framework of their divorce settlement, they can substantially expedite the process, reduce the cost and lay the groundwork for productive discussions on the ancillary issues. However, since the divorce settlement, once accepted by the court, is legally binding, the couple should never attempt to finalize a divorce agreement without first consulting a knowledgeable divorce attorney. The key to a successful uncontested divorce is having a legal professional challenge your notions of what is desirable and practical, so the final agreement reflects the reality of your individual lives. Whether the couple works with a single attorney in a collaborative setting, or each spouse retains their own in traditional negotiations or mediation, professional counsel is essential.
Custom solutions to fit your individual circumstances
Intermountain Legal can give you as much or as little help with your uncontested divorce as you desire. You may have a very modest marital estate and only need to have some paperwork drawn up. You may have drafted papers and simply want an attorney to review their contents. Intermountain Legal reviews divorce documents for clarity and completeness. We check to see if your agreement anticipates changed circumstances that are likely to occur in the future. If you’ve only just begun your settlement discussions, we can represent you in proposing terms and negotiating a settlement. The choice is entirely yours: you can pay for limited, individual services, such as document review, or retain us to take your divorce from initial discussions through to conclusion.
