Long Beach uncontested divorce
In an uncontested divorce, both spouses agree on the terms of the divorce. Divorce issues requiring agreement include:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Property division
Uncontested divorce is the easiest type of divorce to handle. However, couples may still need legal guidance to ensure they file correctly and meet all legal requirements.

- How much child support should be paid monthly?
- Which spouse keeps the house?
- What custody arrangements can be made if one spouse is moving out of state?
- Does your wife or husband have the right to spousal support?
- Does the way your spouse wants to divide up the assets seem unfair?
Issues in conflict complicate the divorce process and require resolution. Methods to resolve Long Beach contested divorce
disputes include negotiated settlements, mediation, collaborative divorce, and courtroom litigation.
Long Beach collaborative divorce
In collaborative divorce, both spouses retain lawyers who work with their clients to resolve differences in a way that benefits both sides.
