An uncontested divorce is often referred to in the state of Oregon as an agreed divorce. In Oregon, when a couple gets an uncontested divorce it means they agree on how to divide property and debts, custody of the children, details of child support and how much will be allotted for spousal support.

It is a common misconception that you don’t need an attorney when you are getting an uncontested divorce. Attorneys are only there when you are arguing, right? Wrong. An attorney can look over your divorce and make sure something isn’t missing.

The divorce might be uncontested because you don’t fully understand an aspect of the divorce, so an attorney can ensure that you understand all of the aspects of what you are agreeing to.
