FREQUENTLY ASKED NORMAN OKLAHOMA UNCONTESTED DIVORCE QUESTIONS

Please recall the answer and the information included shall not be deemed as legal advice, as you must consult a lawyer for specific legal advice. Your situation and circumstance may require different conditions than any general answers could effectuate. Always consult with an attorney to apply the law to your particular facts and state.
1. What is an uncontested or agreed to divorce?
An uncontested or agreed to divorce is a category of divorce in which both parties come to an agreement as pertains to the dissolution of the marriage, the split of property and marital assets; custody, visitation, and child support when children are involved; and any other provision which apply.
2. Do we have to have a lawyer in court with us?
No. You may represent yourself in what is called “Pro Se” which is Latin and means “For Self;” due to the fact you both agree to the terms and have a mutual desire to save time and money. We draft anywhere from 1000-2000 divorce cases a year where individuals represent themselves.
3. How long does the divorce take? How much time is involved?
A divorce can be much faster in Norman Oklahoma at Cleveland County District Court when it is Uncontested. Typically, our customers get their divorce finished in as soon as 10-14 days if they have no children in the marriage; and 90 days if there are children. Some people have urgent circumstances and request an Application to Waive the 90 Day Waiting Period so that they can ask the judge to let them finish quicker than 90 days. These times vary on a case by case basis and must be approved by a Judge!
4. What are some advantages of an uncontested divorce vs. litigated divorce?
Many benefits are observed. The price is less than the cost of a disputed or contested divorce. You’re in control of the division of your property and debts. You can create a visitation and custody strategy that works for your family. The process can finish much more rapidly. It is easy to prevent the fury and hard feelings that frequently occur during a trial. Divorce costs overall are cheap divorce costs.
5. If my spouse isn’t willing to sign, what happens next?
If a husband or wife are unwilling to agree to your terms, we then at that time recommend divorce mediation. Mediation is a neutral process whereby a 3rd party, neutral negotiator intervenes between both spouses to help settle any pending disputes or disagreements. The Mediator, by law, is a neutral person. The result is beneficial to both Petitioner and Respondent, in that each does not have to worry about bias existing. For example, a Respondent working directly with the Petitioner’s attorney could be a scary situation, in that the Petitioner’s attorney is working SOLELY in the best interests of the Petitioner. By law, an attorney cannot represent two opposing spouses. The Mediator is a legal device created to facilitate a legal, neutral environment to solve divorce problems/disagreements.

I had been out looking for a divorce lawyer, when I found it was too expensive for my budget, I found Express Documents and Mediation, Inc. They were extremely helpful, very efficient, everything was done in a quick and timely manner and the cost was right on my budget.
Great folks and Great service. Offering the best solution for many needs.
Originally, I Rated the company a 1 star because my papers were done and ready to be picked up, but no one called to let me know and I really, really needed to get a quick divorce. However, the issue was more than made up to me, the gentleman I worked with was so, so nice and helpful, and I'm now divorced. This was the most simple and inexpensive way I could have possibly gone about it. Thanks, guys! You've helped me achieve the best day of my life!
