What is an Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce is straightforward. In an uncontested divorce, both parties have agreed on the terms of the divorce, including, but not limited to, the division of assets and debts, child supportchild custodyspousal maintenance (formerly referred to as alimony), and parenting time.

Compromise is key when approaching divorce. Both parties must understand that working together is often the best solution: the better the communication and compromise, the more favorable the outcome for the parties and their child/children.
