Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce

We provide counsel and representation for those in Riverside County going through contested or uncontested divorce. During a contested divorce, both parties will find it is difficult to agree upon important legal matters. They may fight or engage in conflicts with one another which will only prolong the legal process. When going through a contested divorce, it is always a wise idea for to retain the services of a divorce lawyer from an award-winning firm like Singleton Smith Law Offices.

During uncontested divorces, spouses are usually able to get through the legal process without much conflict, but will still benefit from the services and guidance of knowledgeable Murrieta family law attorneys.
