Uncontested Divorce

A divorce may be something that both parties have agreed upon and determining the parameters of division may be fairly simple. If this is the case, this is known as uncontested divorce because neither party takes issue with the division of assets or custody. In this type of divorce, our Alabama lawyers can help each party come to a simple agreement about spousal support, child support, debts, alimony, child custody, and the division of assets.

In an uncontested divorce, we may even be able to help keep you and your spouse out of court and limit your out-of-pocket costs. These types of divorces are smoother and usually faster because neither party will file an appeal.

Contested Divorce

In an uncontested divorce, there will be a multitude of emotional and financial struggles that our lawyers can help you with. We never suggest going through a contested divorce without legal representation because the emotional stress may cause you to make decisions without properly thinking about the ramifications. The Shelnutt Law Firm has experience in helping calm a seemingly heating situation and helping both sides come an cordial, balanced, and fair agreement.

In the case of contested divorce, each party can't agree upon the separation of assets, finances, or child custody. In these types of cases, it is even more important to hire our attorneys for your representation. Our attorneys make our clients their top priority and will invest their time to determine what is important to you, how to prove what should be yours after the divorce, and, in particular, the safety and happiness of your children and how that pertains to a custody agreement.
