Uncontested divorce in Kansas

The decision to split up with the spouse may be one of the toughest in a person’s life. However, the couples can choose how to end their marriage. There are two options in Kansas: contested and uncontested. Let’s review the differences to know which one suits you best:

  • Contested divorce. This option is the only one available for those spouses who were unable to reach an agreement concerning important matters such as child custody and support, alimony, or property division. The problem is that in this case, they have to hire lawyers to represent them in court and attend various proceedings that won’t end until a judge has enough information to make a final decision.
  • Uncontested dissolution. This way of ending a marriage is much easier, cheaper, and faster than a contested one. The couple involved in an uncontested divorce does not necessarily need to hire a lawyer as they already agreed on all the matters. Besides, uncontested dissolution is usually finalized as soon as the waiting period in the state is over.

An important part of the divorce process is the preparation of the required documentation to file it with a court. There are dozens of forms required for each specific case, and they are extremely difficult to find on the Web. How to save your time and get up-to-date papers quickly? Use OnlineDivorcer!

Once there, find the following: any dissolution-related information; forms that are required for your case; info regarding the court fees. If you are not sure what forms you need, getting legal advice might be the best course of action.
  • If you have children, you need to check state custody and support guidelines. Also, find out whether you have to attend parenting classes, as well as what is their price and duration. Finally, find all the child-related forms and check when you need to file them.
  • Now you can start answering questions and ticking boxes in the forms. Note that you have to google legal terminology to avoid making mistakes in the forms. Also, make sure you left fields that have to be filled out by the clerk untouched.
  • Finally, find out whether you need to attend any classes in order to represent yourself on a hearing date without legal help.
  • Now you can print the documents and start the signing process. Please note that some documents can only be signed in front of the notary.

Getting a divorce in Kansas with a child

Child custody and support are among the key aspects that divorcing parents need to discuss before initiating a divorce.

  • Kansas courts usually prefer granting joint legal custody to parents and visitation rights to grandparents.
  • There are three options for physical custody: joint, where the child lives with both parents; divided, where one child lives with one parent, and other children may reside with the second parent; and non-parental custody, where the child resides with other guardians who are not parents.
  • The court also considers the wishes of the child while making a decision.
  • If parents manage to come to an agreement and propose a parenting plan, the Kansas court is usually inclined to accept it.
  • If parents are not able to agree on custody or visitation, the judge has to make a decision on his or her own. They consider such aspects as child’s wishes and needs, parent’s involvement in the child’s life, etc.
