Uncontested Divorce

The word “divorce” is so commonly associated with bitterness and anger that it is easy to forget that it is possible to end a marriage without allowing those to be the overriding feelings. For parties who are able to sit down, reason with each other and reach agreements on issues, uncontested divorce can be a great option.

At Schmidt & Schmidt, S.C., our Wausau uncontested divorce attorneys do everything possible to minimize conflict between parties. When children are involved, we treat the situation with the utmost care, always shielding them from unnecessary tension. Our lawyers are happy to sit down and help divorcing couples work through their issues out of court, sparing them the expense and anguish of litigation.

When you are looking for an attorney who will actually help you, one who will not steer you toward more conflict, call Schmidt & Schmidt, S.C., in Wausau. You can reach us at 715-845-2015, toll free 866-514-1627 or contact us online to schedule a meeting.

Some of the Benefits of Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested divorce brings with it a number of real, tangible advantages over traditional litigation. For example:

  • You and your former spouse get to control your own futures. You reach agreements about things like child custody, visitation, property division, and any other issue that comes up.
  • Your family’s destiny is not determined by a judge who does not know who you are or what is important to you.
  • The legal expenses for uncontested divorce are vastly lower than they would be for any litigated divorce.
  • When the divorce is over, you and your ex-spouse can be on civil terms, which is important if you have children, because your contact with each other will not end simply because you are no longer married.

If you believe an uncontested divorce might fit your needs, we encourage you to reach out to us. Even if you think litigation is the only option, still get in touch with us, because there may be less conflict than you think. Our Wausau lawyers certainly litigate when needed, but we encourage the more economical, affordable, and civil approach of uncontested divorce when it makes sense.

An alternative you may wish to consider is Family Law Mediation.    For information on this approach please view our Mediation page.
