El Paso Uncontested Divorce Lawyer
Knowledgeable Lawyer Handling Divorce in El Paso
Many couples believe that engaging in an uncontested divorce will be much easier than that of the contested sort. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The truth is uncontested divorces occur in a series of sometimes complex ways. Without a knowledgeable attorney at your side, important details could be missed and lead to a much more expensive, drawn-out legal process.
At the Law Office of Xochitl A. Ambriz, our El Paso uncontested divorce attorney works closely with our clients, carefully answering any and all questions that they may have. We take a compassionate approach when dealing with family law matters, being mindful of the fact that each case is truly unique and should be treated so.
Agreed Divorce Attorney in El Paso County
Uncontested divorces play out via three major avenues. These are:
- Agreement: In these cases, we work together with both parties as we incorporate this divorce agreement into the divorce decree. After a 60-day waiting period, we meet with both parties to pick through the divorce decree, answering every question and tweaking any details. Ultimately, the court will make its decision based on the best interests of any children who may be involved while assuring that the division of assets is fair and equitable.
- Default: If one spouse has moved or cannot be located, we represent the party who wishes to pursue a divorce. A default uncontested divorce is common in deportation situations or with military personnel who return from abroad and cannot locate his or her spouse. We work with our clients as we diligently search for the lost party. After all our resources have been exhausted, we draft a decree for the present party. As in all cases, the court will make a ruling considering the best interests of any child involved.
- Waiver: In other cases, one of the parties decides he or she does not want to be a part of the proceedings so we create a decree that ultimately serves the interests of the non-waiving spouse and the best interests of any children.
It is important to note that if one or both parties find themselves at a stalemate, an uncontested divorce may go the way of a contested divorce. If this occurs, our Texas lawyer cannot represent either party due to conflict of interest.
