What Is An Uncontested Divorce?

An Uncontested divorce is one in which the spouses are agreed to every single aspect of the case including children, property, debts, etc. If the parties disagree on any issue, the case is no longer “uncontested”. Keep in mind that you might believe that everything will be resolved agreeably, but, once you start going through all of the issues with an attorney, don’t be surprised if there are some areas of contention.

Uncontested Divorce Should Not Be Used If:

 ·       If there is any domestic violence.

·       There is any disagreement regarding any issue involved in the case.

·       If there is a bankruptcy pending.

·       If the Attorney General is involved.

·       If you are not completely sure of the assets, liabilities, or other issues involved in the case.

·       If you are seeking anything other than a standard possession order (REVIEW STANDARD POSSESION ORDER HERE)
