On behalf of The Law Office of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A.

When you are unhappy with your marriage it is really hard not to think about pushing the “over it” button. So the question is posed to people who are unhappy with their marriages and who went through with the divorce, are you happier now that you are divorced? The answers were mixed. Some were happier while others were unhappy. A study was asked to people who were married and then asked the same question five years later, the marriage was actually stronger. When researching anything about happiness and divorce it is really complicated especially when you have conflicting results. The truth is that there is no way to really tell you if you will be happy after divorce. However, there is no way to tell you that you will be happy if you stay either. So what do you do? You follow your heart.

The Smart Divorce

If you are dealing with a low conflict relationship then you may benefit from seeking an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce is super easy. It is easy on the couple and easy on your wallet. This kind of divorce happens when the couple can come together and agree upon what they want and don’t want. They are not about fighting over property, estate, or finances. They typically already have a plan for children or pets. The uncontested divorce is the most amicable which means that the people are typically really mature; they are able to work through their feelings in order to come to a resolution without heading to court.

Our divorce attorney at The Law Office Of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A. in Fort Lauderdale likes to accommodate uncontested divorces with a flat fee of $1,500. This fee covers all the papers and finalizations needed by law to end your marriage certificate. Uncontested divorces are the cheapest option, but sometimes you can start with uncontested, but end up having more complications than you thought.

The More Challenging Divorce

Contested divorces are really challenging. They are challenging because the couples are at odds with each other. Often times divorces will through mediation to try and resolve issues, but sometimes those issues cannot be resolved. So, off to courts you go. People wonder why divorces cost so much and it is typically because they are going in and out of court. Depending on the kind of divorce or what is said in court, one party may be responsible for paying for both their lawyer and that of their ex-spouse. Don’t let this happen to you. If you are dealing with a contested divorce, let our Divorce Attorney at The Law Office Of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A. in Fort Lauderdale help you reduce your fees and get you the results you deserve.
