In most cases, there is no need for either of the parties to an uncontested divorce to appear in court. We will appear for you in court.
INFORMATION, TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Guam law allows you to obtain a divorce from an American jurisdiction even though neither you nor your spouse has previously been to Guam. However, your spouse will need to consent, in writing to the divorce and one of you will need to visit Guam for 7 days. Guam is an American Territory and the judgments of its courts are recognized by all other U.S. Jurisdictions.
Most divorces on Guam are granted on the grounds of “irreconcilable difference”. As a practical matter, this is a “no fault” divorce. The court will grant the divorce based on the parties' agreement that the marriage should end.
If you have not already done so, you will need to complete a short questionnaire asking for the basic information needed to prepare the divorce papers.
Your spouse must sign a “consent to divorce and jurisdiction” form. We will prepare this form, and if requested, send it directly to your spouse by mail, fax or email. This form must be notarized by a U.S. notary public. Within the United States, notary publics can be found in courts, law offices, insurance agencies, and many other places. Outside the United States, the forms may be notarized by an official in a U.S. Embassy or consulate office, or other U.S. recognized notary public. Acceptable notaries can often be found on U.S. military installations abroad.
We are not responsible for ensuring that your spouse's consent is returned to us, as we have no control over that. You must follow up and ensure that it is properly signed and promptly returned. There will be no refund of the fees if the signed consent is not returned to us, or if there is a reconciliation, or you otherwise decide not to go forward with the uncontested divorce.
Guam's new divorce laws require that one of the parties be physically present in Guam for seven days before the divorce petition is filed. In some cases, a final decree of divorce has been obtained within 2 to 3 weeks of the filing. When there is a need, the court can be asked to give immediate consideration to the divorce and it can often be finalized within a few days or your stay. You may return home to wait for the court to grant your divorce.
Certified copies of the signed decree will be provided to the client as soon as they are received from the court – usually within 1 or 2 days of the hearing.
Prices starting at $1,525.00 including filing fees.
