What Does an Uncontested Divorce in Orlando, Florida Mean?

              An uncontested divorce means that both parties in a divorce or dissolution of marriage agree on major issues such as custody of their minor children and the division of their property.  This type of divorce will typically be less costly than one in which all issues between the parties are contested.  A Marital Settlement Agreement will define the terms of the agreement that the parties have reached. 
              An experienced Orlando divorce attorney can play an important role in ensuring that the Petition for the Dissolution of Marriage is filed properly to begin the divorce.  The paperwork required by the court can be overwhelming and confusing.  If initial pleadings are not filed correctly, it may prolong the procedure or affect your rights. 
            Once the petition and initial pleadings have been filed, the details of the Marital Settlement Agreement must be worked out.  It is at this point that each party must take care to see that their rights and obligations are properly defined.  Each party would be wise to have an attorney of their choosing review the agreement to be certain that their individual interests are protected.  Once an agreement has been reached, it can be incorporated into a Final Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage.  This document must also be filed with the court.

Luther, P.A., we’re committed to helping Orlando area residents resolve their divorce issues as quickly and cost effectively as possible.  To set up an initial consultation with Mr. Luther, please call our office at (407) 835-9900 or for more information, visit our website at
