Uncontested divorces do not get much attention. That's probably because
they lack the tears and theatrics of the splashy separations one reads

and troubled divorce from Kris Humphries, very few people heard about
Hilary Duff's quiet, respectful separation from her husband.
Duff, 26, and her husband, Mike Comrie, 33, separated Jan. 10. The two,
who were married for three years and have one child together, spent an
estimated 18 months in couples therapy before they decided it was best

want to separate peacefully and have no plans to argue with each other in court.

Of course, having a smooth,
uncontested divorce does take a little work on the part of both ex-spouses. In addition to

your side. This lawyer can help you meet your goal of separating with
a minimum of fuss.
