An uncontested divorce means both parties have come to an acceptable agreement on all legally significant aspects of their divorce case. This includes the aspects of child custody and child support, as well as property division and spousal support. While it is possible for this to be achieved between the two parties alone, enlisting the assistance of a DeLand divorce attorney is a wise decision. Even if the divorce is entirely amicable, it will assist both parties to achieve a fair resolution if they are informed as to their legal rights and responsibilities. As there are many intricate laws surroundings these aspects of a divorce, an attorney can be invaluable in this process.
