Uncontested divorce in Missouri

Deciding to end your marriage in the state of Missouri, there are two types of divorce you may choose from: contested and uncontested.

  • Contested dissolution. Sometimes, the divorce process may be very tough, with both spouses being unable to agree on important matters such as child custody and support, alimony, or property division. In this case, the couple has to involve legal professionals and settle their differences during the multiple court hearings. No wonder that this type of dissolution is considered extremely time-consuming, expensive, and stressful.
  • Uncontested divorce. This option works for spouses who came to a full agreement concerning all the dissolution-related aspects and thus do not need to hire a lawyer to help them. Uncontested divorce is always much cheaper than a contested one and can be finalized as soon as legally allowed.

However, even if you choose an uncontested option, you still have to search for and fill out the documents for your dissolution. There are dozens of forms that you may need for your divorce, and it is quite difficult to find up-to-date ones on your own. Therefore, in such cases, the best option would be to get professional help from OnlineDivorcer.
