Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce is the most simple form of divorce. In an uncontested divorce, both people not only agree to get divorced, they also agree on all of the issues of their divorce, such as:

  • A property settlement that fairly divides marital assets and debts
  • Whether one of the spouses will receive spousal maintenance, in what amount and for how long
  • Who will have custody of children and what kind of custody they will have (joint custody or sole custody)
  • How much visitation the other parent will have, and when
  • How much child support a parent will receive

If there are any issues of disagreement, the divorce is a “contested” divorce. That’s common at the beginning but most people ARE able to arrive at a mutually agreeable solution after negotiations or divorce mediation.

Uncontested Divorce Lawyers

At the Schneider Law Firm, we’re here to help, with a practical, problem-solving approach that allows our clients to end their marriage without the emotional drama and cost of a court fight. One of the ways our uncontested divorce lawyers do this is by helping our clients stay focused on their most important goals.

  • Are you eager to get your divorce done quickly so you can move on with your life?
  • Are you most concerned about maintaining a good working relationship so that the two of you can continue to be effective parents to your children?
  • Are you willing to give up a few more assets in order to avoid the expense of a legal battle?

The strategy we pursue in negotiations will be formed by your goals. You are in the driver’s seat.

Expert Resources When You Need Help

Another way we help clients reach uncontested divorce agreement is to ensure they have the information they need to make sound decisions. Do you need a financial advisor to explain the tax consequences of dividing a particular asset? Do you need an accountant to properly value your interest in a business? Would it give you greater peace of mind if you worked with a child psychologist to gain insight into how your child is dealing with the divorce? We can help you secure those expert services.

  • Great Lawyer in court and out

    Had a tough interstate custody case with my ex. Mike was awesome and made sure my kid end up here with me where he belonged. Highly recommend.


  • E. Jenkins

    In the summer of 2013 I found myself visiting multiple legal firms in the FTW area. I was searching for the perfect person and firm to represent me. I was filing for custody of my very young daughter. When I met Melissa Swan, I knew that my search was over. She immediately had a game plan and made me feel very secure. Anytime I had a question, Priscilla and Jason made sure that it was answered in a timely manner. We spent less than a year, and after it was all said and done, I have primary custody of my daughter. I would say hiring Ms. Swan and Schneider Law Firm was one of the smartest decisions I have ever made.

  • A. Hoover

    Absolutely the best law firm around when it comes to Family Law. I first came into contact with Melissa Swan in 2013 and I only wish our paths would have crossed way before. Melissa is outstanding and has been a total lifesaver for my daughter and myself. She, along with Priscilla and Laurie have gone above and beyond. I would highly recommend Melissa Swan.

    Bria Wallace represented me in a family case. I would and have recommended her to many friends who were or have been in the same situation as I was. She is very professional and honest. She helped me get the most precious thing back to me. Thank you Bria.

    Melissa Swan was absolutely brilliant at handling a family law appeal judgement for me. Appeals in family court are VERY difficult, but she cared enough to really dig deep and make a bullet-proof appeal case and WINNING! Would highly recommend.
