Many clients want to resolve their divorce between themselves. They are concerned that a judge does not really know them or their unique situation and cannot make the best decision for their children.

The following topics should be discussed and agreed upon in a typical uncontested divorce:

  • Which parent will hire an attorney and take the divorce
  • Custody of the children (full custody, joint custody, shared custody, divided custody)
  • Visitation by the other parent
  • Child support
  • Tax deduction for the child
  • Medical insurance and expenses for the child
  • Disposition of marital home and mortgage
  • List of assets to each parent
  • List of debts to each parent
  • Retirement Accounts
  • Alimony
  • Who will pay attorney’s fees and costs
