Lee's Summit Uncontested Divorce Attorneys

Our Uncontested Divorce Services
Altieri Gilmore LLP’s Uncontested Divorce representation services are structured for couples who are looking for a quick, simple as possible divorce and do not want to fight it over in court. In these uncontested divorce cases, both the Husband and the Wife are in full agreement about all aspects of the divorce, and want to minimize the time, cost and stress involved, and in uncontested cases were children are involved this option is a way to try and minimize any potential emotional damage that a divorce trial may otherwise cause to the children.

Uncontested divorces are where both parties are in agreement, and they want an affordable alternative to the standard hourly divorce rate. In the legal world of hourly fees between two attorneys that are battling it out, there is often times very little incentive to settle the case, because fighting it out is good for both lawyers involved as far as their bank account is concerned. Everyone has either had a friend or family member who has been through a long draw out and expensive
divorce or has been down this road themselves. Altieri Gilmore LLP is offering a less expensive alternative to the standard contested divorce in Missouri. This inexpensive and time saving option is called a “Cooperative, Uncontested Divorce”.

What exactly is a Cooperative, Uncontested Divorce?
In a Cooperative, uncontested Divorce both the Husband and the Wife are in agreement about each and every aspect of a divorce, including, the following matters:

  • Both husband and wife agree that a divorce is necessary
  • Both husband and wife are willing to cooperate with each until it is completed
  • Both husband and wife are in agreement on how all of the property should be divided
  • Both husband and wife agree on child support, and child custody issues
  • Both husband and wife desire an alternative to the long, expensive divorces

In an Uncontested Divorce in Missouri the divorce proceedings can take place without much interference from attorneys or the Missouri Court system. While a Missouri Judge has ultimate discretion to accept or deny any terms of any divorce, typically a Missouri divorce judge will not question the terms in which both the husband and wife have agreed upon, unless the terms set forth are clearly unfair to the husband or the wife.

What are the main benefits of an Uncontested Divorce?

  • Typically Missouri uncontested divorce cases are much more affordable;
    Typically Missouri uncontested divorce cases are quick and easy compared to standard divorce case;
  • Typically in Missouri no court appearance for your divorce is required by either spouse (if you hire an attorney) in many counties including Jackson County.

What a Missouri Uncontested Divorce IS “not”:
- Where both husband and wife agree on almost all of the divorce issues, but have one or
more issues that they can't seem to come to an agreement on.
- And obviously a divorce where one party refuses to be cooperative, and or cannot be found.
