Prescott Uncontested Divorce Attorneys
Helping Criminal Defendants Navigate Divorce
Divorce is a difficult process for anyone, but it can be especially challenging for those who are facing criminal charges. If you are in this situation, you may be wondering how your criminal case will affect your divorce and what you can do to protect your rights and interests.
At Signature Law Group, PLLC, we understand the unique challenges that criminal defendants face when going through a divorce. Our Prescott uncontested divorce lawyers are here to help you navigate the process and work toward a favorable resolution.
What Is an Uncontested Divorce?
An uncontested divorce is a divorce in which both spouses agree on all of the key terms of the divorce. This includes issues such as property division, child custody, child support, and spousal support. When spouses are able to agree on these issues, the divorce process is typically much faster, less expensive, and less stressful.
Uncontested divorces are often resolved through:
- Collaborative divorce
- Settlement negotiations
However, even if you and your spouse are not able to agree on all of the terms of your divorce, you may still be able to resolve your case through an uncontested divorce. In these situations, the court will make the final decisions on the unresolved issues.
Uncontested divorces are generally much more favorable for all parties involved, as they allow the spouses to maintain control over the outcome of their case. They also tend to be much less expensive and time-consuming than contested divorces.
How Does a Criminal Case Affect Divorce?
When one spouse is facing criminal charges, it can complicate the divorce process. This is especially true if the criminal charges are related to domestic violence or child abuse. In these situations, the court may need to take additional steps to ensure the safety and well-being of the victim and any children involved.
Some of the ways that a criminal case can affect divorce include:
- Temporary orders: If one spouse is facing criminal charges, the court may issue temporary orders to protect the other spouse and any children involved. These orders may include temporary custody orders, temporary restraining orders, and temporary support orders.
- Child custody: If one spouse is facing criminal charges, the court may be hesitant to award that spouse custody of the children. However, the court will always prioritize the best interests of the children when making custody decisions.
- Property division: If one spouse is facing criminal charges, the court may be hesitant to award that spouse a large share of the marital property. However, the court will always strive to divide the property in a way that is fair and equitable.
- Spousal support: If one spouse is facing criminal charges, the court may be hesitant to award that spouse spousal support. However, the court will always consider the financial needs and resources of each spouse when making spousal support decisions.
It is important to note that a criminal case will not prevent you from getting a divorce. However, it may affect the outcome of your case. That is why it is important to work with an experienced uncontested divorce attorney who can help you navigate the process and protect your rights and interests.
