Should you choose to hire us for your uncontested divorce in Missouri, we will communicate with you however you prefer – usually by phone, email, or both. If you are more traditional and want to do things by regular mail, that can be arranged as well.
The Uncontested Divorce Process
First of all, during an uncontested divorce we only represent one party: the petitioner. Our licensed Missouri attorneys do not ever represent both parties in a divorce.
When you first hire us, we will typically send you a brief questionnaire to fill out. We will walk you through the process and answer any questions you have. Once we receive the necessary information from you, we will go to work and create all the necessary legal documents. Upon creating drafts, we will send you all of the documents by either email or regular mail – whichever you prefer.
At that point, you will simply need to review the documents. If there are changes, we will edit the documents and prepare them again, offering up to two rounds of changes at no additional cost. If you have questions during this phase, we would be happy to answer them. When the documents are completed, all the parties involved will need to sign the legal documents. We will give you very specific and helpful instructions to follow. Then, we will file the documents with your county court. There is a 30-day waiting period for divorce in all Missouri counties.
After the 30-day waiting period expires, we will file the remaining required documents and ask the judge to sign a judgment, granting and finalizing your divorce. Once the judge signs, your case will be complete.
It is quite simple – perhaps more simple than the traditional visit to the lawyer’s office, where you have to take off work and sit in the waiting room. Please contact our law firm to file your case by phone, or you can email us using the box on the right-hand side of this screen. Finally, we can also arrange to file your divorce by regular mail.
