and wife are in complete agreement on all relevant issues. This includes
dividing property and debts, awarding
alimony (if any), and if children are involved, resolving
child support. An uncontested divorce may also be referred to as non-contested divorce,
divorce, friendly divorce, or cooperative divorce.

The Benefits of an Uncontested Divorce
An uncontested divorce is generally much easier and quicker than other
forms of dissolution of marriage. In addition, this type of divorce may
be more affordable than other types of divorce. An uncontested divorce
can move quite smoothly because you and your spouse have worked out all
(or most of) the terms necessary for your negotiated agreement. Therefore,
your attorney can simply focus on preparing the pleadings that are required
for filing a divorce case and the documents necessary to accurately reflect
While a traditional divorce typically takes 9 months to a year to complete
(with some lasting much longer than that), an uncontested divorce can
easily be completed in a few months.
Is Uncontested Divorce Right for Me?
Hearing about the benefits of an uncontested divorce makes people eager
to choose that option. However, this type of divorce is not a fit for
everyone. Some people may require a contested divorce on some or all of
their issues. How can you determine which path is right for you?
There are several signs that uncontested divorce may be the right option
for your situation, including:
- You and your spouse agree that divorce is the best option for you
- You and your spouse are able to communicate openly with one another
- You and your spouse are willing to compromise on some issues
- You and your spouse can agree on a date for filing the divorce documents
- You and your spouse agree on how your assets should be divided
- You and your spouse agree on how to divide your debts
- You and your spouse agree on terms for alimony
- You and your spouse agree on child custody and child support issues
Even if the above factors are true, uncontested divorce may not be advisable
for your situation if there has been any recent history of domestic violence,
alcohol abuse, or substance addiction during your marriage. Also, if your
spouse tries to intimidate you to get what they want, litigation may be
a more appropriate option.
