What is an Uncontested Divorce?

In a contested divorce, you and your spouse disagree on at least one issue: division of assets and debts, custody, child support, or alimony. A contested divorce can still be low conflict. Your attorney can help you reach an agreement with your spouse without going to court. A low-conflict contested divorce is faster and easier than a high-conflict divorce.

What is a Contested Divorce?

In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse agree 1) to get divorced, and 2) on all the issues in the divorce. Divorce issues include division of assets and debts, custody, child support, and alimony. You and your spouse sign an agreement on these issues before the divorce case is filed in court. This is the easiest and fastest way to get divorced.

Considering family crisis can be very emotional, draining, exhaustive, combative, and everything in between, they knew exactly how to provide supportive services, present details in an understandable manner, and bring calm to the storm.  The process was easy, even allowing less-than-normal circumstances for getting paperwork signed, and it was done efficiently and with excellent communication throughout the process.  Highly recommend!

Lead Attorney

Max Ruthenberg-Marshall founded Porchlight to give clients a better way to divorce. Max saw that the traditional approach to divorce was usually harmful to clients. It increased conflict and dragged out the process. Max found that when she explained the difference between traditional and low-conflict divorce, most clients wanted a low-conflict divorce. So Max founded Porchlight—a firm committed to helping clients avoid court and making the process as painless as possible.
