  • Cheap Knoxville Divorce

A simple process…

You and your spouse start the process by completing a questionnaire. The questionnaire informs Mr. Collver of all of the pertinent facts necessary to complete your divorce. The nature of agreed divorce is that all assets, property, and debts are divided equally. You should write out who will be responsible for what debt and who will take what property.

Generally all property or assets obtained during the marriage is considered marital property and must be divided equally. Property that you brought into the marriage, inheritances received during the marriage, or gifts received during the marriage. Even if the property (cars, boats, homes) is titled in your name, it is still considered marital property. It is important that Mr. Collver know about all property in the marriage.

The divorce decree has no binding effect on your creditors. If you and your spouse decide to divide up joint debt (debt you both signed for), you and your spouse will need to work with the individual creditors about assigning liability to the spouse who will be responsible for the debt. If you and your spouse agree to divide the debt and your spouse stops paying the debt then you will be liable for the unpaid debt.

If you and your spouse have children together, you will need to have a parenting plan. A parenting plan informs the parties when you and your spouse will each of the children. The parenting plan also informs each spouse of his or her child support obligation. Child support is statutory in nature and cannot be relieved through agreement of the spouses.

It is important for Mr. Collver to know about previous marriages or court orders. Child support orders, visitation agreements, and the like can have an effect on your agreed divorce.
