What does "Uncontested 103" mean?

Louisiana Civil Code 103 prescribes that when parties have lived separate and apart for the appropriate amount of time, a divorce can be rendered.

It means your spouse is in agreement and will agree to accept service of a divorce petition.

It usually also means that there are no other contested issues.

Usually, there are no children involved, there is no community property, and no spousal support or child support involved.

So these 103 uncontested divorces can be completed a little more quickly, because your spouse agrees to sign an acceptance of service in front of a notary public.

Now, these 103 divorces are pretty rare, but if you think you qualify for a 103 divorce that is uncontested, give us a call at 985-240-9773.
