Attorney Robin CotlerWith more than 15 years of legal experience, Robin Cotler has guided countless clients through the divorce process. Each divorce is unique, and the number of “uncontested” divorces far exceeds those that result in a full trial. At COTLER LAW LLC in Stamford, Connecticut, we tailor our representation of your case to fit your needs. Our skill at negotiating agreements and contracts often resolves the matter at issue and may result in a simple uncontested divorce.

For a free initial consultation, contact our firm at (203) 977-2413. We offer competitive, reasonable fees, and we accept most major credit cards.

During an uncontested divorce, the parties agree in writing to the terms of the dissolution of their marriage. This will include a division of their marital assets, obligations, and estates. Usually at least one of the parties appears before the court with the agreement and answers questions posed by the judge. When necessary, we may be able to represent you in a limited attorney capacity in order to help you through your final court appearance.

Attorney Cotler counsels individuals regarding their rights and responsibilities as a married couple, as a divorced spouse or as a parent. Our law firm offers limited support services to couples with a simple uncontested divorce. Depending upon the needs and goals of the parties, we may be able to assist you with the following:

  • Counseling you through the divorce process so that you and your spouse are prepared for the steps you must take
  • Drafting a divorce agreement that encapsulates the arrangement you have negotiated with your spouse
  • Offering instructions regarding Court procedure and the filing of necessary documents
  • Addressing issues as they arise

Do We Have To Go To Court?

Many clients ask this question. The answer depends on the facts of each case and the behavior of the parties. A simple uncontested divorce where there are no minor children and an executed separation agreement is unlikely to require more than one party’s participation before the court, for a short period of time. However, despite the best intentions of parties and lawyers, some cases become “contested” or more complicated than originally thought and need more extensive work to ensure a successful dissolution of the marriage. If you begin your divorce action with an agreement and the agreement falls apart before you are divorced, we can likely assist you in still obtaining a divorce judgment.
