Can I Get An Uncontested Divorce?

Married couples may apply for an uncontested divorce if they agree on how to divide their shared assets following their separation. However, there are certain criteria that needs to be met before a court will grant a divorce.

At Henderson Heinrichs LLP, our family lawyers provide legal guidance for married couples who wish to file for an uncontested divorce. With offices in Vancouver, British Columbia and Edmonton, Alberta, we will review the terms of your separation, and identify any shortcomings or pitfalls that need to be resolved.

Resolving Issues Regarding Children

In order for an uncontested divorce to be processed, child support arrangements must comply with existing legislation. While spouses are allowed to agree on spousal support payments, child support payments are an automatic right and follow specific family law guidelines in each province.

Our legal team leverages our comprehensive knowledge of children's rights in both jurisdictions to make sure your decisions are compliant with current legislation. If there are issues to be resolved, our legal team will assist you with developing a solution that is tailored to your specific situation.

Experience That Quickly Identifies Problematic Situations

While you and your partner may agree on a specific item, you may not realize there is existing legislation to comply with. For example, you may need to review your decision on how the matrimonial home is divided.

Our firm leverages over 20 years of family law experience to identify any issues with the terms of your separation, and how to resolve them. We will make sure you understand exactly what you will walk away with after your divorce.
