What Are Uncontested Legal Matters?

At The Wade Law Firm, PLLC in Ridgeland, Mississippi, we focus on uncontested legal matters.

Many legal proceedings take the form of contested issues, such as a sour divorce or a criminal proceeding. However, most people aren't aware of the uncontested option allowing significant legal issues to be resolved with little or no conflict or lasting animosity. Uncontested matters are essentially those that are resolved by agreement between the two parties.

Uncontested resolutions are of great advantage to all parties involved since they offer an economical and sensible resolution to serious issues. Attorney Vangela M. Wade offers representation based on a flat fee basis for many uncontested cases - a huge plus for those looking to smoothly and affordably resolve their personal legal matter.

Putting enough issues aside to resolve a divorce in an uncontested fashion promotes an amicable parting of ways and avoids creating lingering animosity between the parties or their family members.
