Danvers Uncontested Divorce Lawyer
Competent Legal Service for Clients throughout the North Shore Boston Area
In a divorce that is not contested, the parties have reached an agreement on the terms of their divorce. All of the related issues, such as the division of marital property and debts, alimony, child support, and child custody and visitation have been resolved. Their agreement is written up and signed in a Separation Agreement which can then be submitted to the family court for approval. This type of uncontested divorce is submitted to the court in a joint action. Neither one of the parties to this legal action is required to be a defendant. The Separation Agreement will be approved, modified, or disapproved by the court, based on what is considered to be fair and reasonable in a divorce settlement per Massachusetts law.

Uncontested Divorce Attorney in Massachusetts
Massachusetts provides a no-fault divorce, which is based on the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. In this type of divorce, you and your spouse will draft and submit an Affidavit of Irretrievable Divorce, which will provide the legal reasons for the dissolution of your marriage. In a no-fault divorce, neither party is required to prove or disprove fault-based grounds, such as cruel or abusive treatment. Other documents will also need to be filed, depending on whether there are children involved.
Because litigation is not required in an uncontested divorce, it is a much faster, less costly process than a divorce which is disputed. Once all the documents are filed and approved by a judge, an uncontested divorce becomes final within 90 days.
