What Are Uncontested Legal Matters?

The legal cases people think of most often are contested matters. Think of the courtroom drama or high-profile cases you see on television. The reality is, most cases aren't as dramatic as the ones we see onscreen.

At The Wade Law Firm, PLLC, we focus on uncontested matters. These are the situations where resolutions have already been reached, or can be more easily reached. Divorce is one area that comes to mind for most people. An uncontested divorce means that both parties have agreed to dissolve the marriage, and in some cases have agreed to other issues, such as child custody and child support.

Even if you have agreed to the specifics, you still need an attorney to help with the details and confirm your divorce meets legal standards.

We offer flat-fee representations because it helps simplify the process. Uncontested matters help you save time and money, and resolve your legal concerns more efficiently.

Types Of Uncontested Matters

We already mentioned divorce proceedings and issues related to children such as child support and child custody. However, uncontested cases involve a wide range of matters, including:

  • Estate planning services, such as wills and probate
  • Paternity
  • Adoption
  • Guardianships
  • Visitation
  • Conservatorships
  • Emancipation of a minor
  • Name change or correction

These are some of the services we offer at our firm for a flat fee. If you have questions for a lawyer about whether your matter is considered uncontested, we can help.
