Uncontested Divorce Proceedings in Southern Florida
An uncontested divorce sounds like it would be rather straight forward and uncomplicated; however there is still a considerable amount of paperwork and court filings involved that must be done accurately and in a timely fashion. Any mistakes on your part can delay your divorce considerably.
Bogle Law has taken on the handling of uncontested divorces from spouses who thought they had everything worked out. But once they looked into it and were confronted with all the paperwork, they quickly became overwhelmed. Our office is prepared to assist you with our low cost divorce if you have most of your agreements already made ahead of time.

Even though this type of divorce may seem the best way to proceed when filing, many spouses do not realize all the different aspects of their lives that they need to review and agree upon. Issues such as amount of child support or alimony, child custody and visitation schedules, (how about those holidays?) division of bills and assets and others issues, are often overlooked.
Although you both may be in good communication, these issues still need to be sorted out exactly per divorce procedure. Having a good Florida divorce attorney to represent you will facilitate the process for you.

How Long Does an Uncontested Divorce Take in Florida?
Generally, an uncontested divorce in Florida can be completed rather quickly compared to a contested divorce. If all of the mandated paperwork is submitted correctly and there are no substantial issues to be resolved, an uncontested divorce can be finalized in as little as a few weeks. However, it is important to keep in mind that the process could take longer if there are any complications or if the spouses are incapable of agreeing on particular issues like property division, spousal support, child custody, etc.
