For each ten (10) calls I receive about how much it costs for a divorce each week, nine (9) of those calls describe the divorce situation as uncontested.
Of those nine (9) divorces that are described to me as uncontested each week, eight (8) of them involve children.
In any divorce involving minor children there could be any number of legal issues that the court will want to know about, including legal custody, physical placement, visitation, shared holidays and vacations with the minor children, tax deductions for each minor child, child support, health and dental insurance, medical, dental, orthodontic, optical and other healthcare expenses uncovered by insurance, transportation of children, and other relevant issues regarding minor children. That’s quite a few legal issues.
Yet out of every nine (9) divorces that are described to me as uncontested, only one (1) person who calls me has addressed even half of these legal issues with his or her spouse.
