Let's Work Together

Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested divorces include any divorce where the separating couple mutually agrees to divorce and is able to reach amicable terms for other issues that may be applicable such as child custody, child support, or community property partition. Most uncontested divorces can be finalized in a timely fashion out of court and save a lot of headache and money.

Rotharmel Shanks, LLC is proud to have extensive experience in handling uncontested divorces. The firm can work with you to determine what your needs are and fully represent you throughout the proceeding. Tracy Rotharmel Shanks is well-versed in the laws defining Petitions for Divorce in Louisiana and has successfully handled numerous uncontested divorces for clients in Southern Louisiana.

An uncontested divorce is a simpler, quicker, and less expensive way to obtain a divorce.  If you and your spouse agree to all terms of your divorce, you can take advantage of the convenience  and expediency of an uncontested divorce and avoid the stress and axiety of a prolonged court battle.

Value

An uncontested divorce is straightforward and simple and so are the costs.  See our low-cost fixed-fee packages below to learn what your legal costs will be. 

Convenience

Uncontested divorces generally do not require court hearings, depositions, or multiple visits to an attorney’s office.

Uncontested divorces can be completed quickly and efficiently, because there are no arguments, no court hearings, and no back-and-forth between attorneys.
