St. Louis Uncontested Divorce Attorney

Your divorce will proceed as either an uncontested divorce or a contested divorce. Each type of divorce employs different methods for arriving at the same outcome: the divorce settlement agreement.

I am Melissa Featherston, an experienced St. Louis, Missouri, uncontested divorce lawyer. I can explain your rights and your options as we work together toward resolving your divorce in a manner that protects your best interests.

What Is the Difference Between Uncontested and Contested Divorce?

In an uncontested divorce, you and the other party are able to agree upon all of the major divorce issues. While this may be a relatively amicable situation, it is still wise to have an attorney's representation. I can ensure that your rights are protected throughout the process and ensure that you are not forfeiting any rights of which you are unaware.

In a contested divorce, you and the other party disagree on at least one of the major divorce issues. This can result in a highly contentious situation that requires strong negotiation and litigation tactics. I am a solid and strong advocate for my divorce clients, fully prepared to represent them in court whenever necessary. Some cases may be particularly contentious and difficult — I will stick with you and your goals throughout the duration.

As your attorney, I will work within the parameters of your specific situation to devise a plan and to achieve your desired results regarding:

The divorce settlement agreement may be reached swiftly, or it may take some time to work out all of the details. I am confident and comfortable handling a range of divorce cases and will be here to help you.
