Uncontested divorces and legal separations

  • Can I explore the option of an uncontested divorce?
    Certainly. An uncontested divorce means that there are no disputes between the spouses and everyone is in agreement about everything. It is always wise to speak with an experienced family law attorney, however, as disputes can occur later in the process. By reading through Mr. Barberi’s divorce book or having a consultation, you will get a clearer picture about whether you can obtain an uncontested divorce.
  • Why do some people choose legal separation over divorce?
    There are several reasons that a couple might choose a legal separation over divorce. These reasons might include religious restrictions or medical insurance benefits. No matter what your situation, it is wise to research your available options before you make a decision.
