What is Uncontested Divorce
An uncontested divorce is a type of divorce where spouses agree on all the major issues. There are usually some details to work through, but in an uncontested case an agreement is reached early on, typically before any paperwork is filed with the court.
An agreement can be reached informally between the spouses, through early mediation or with the assistance of an attorney. Generally, an uncontested case means both spouses agreed to the divorce terms outside of the court system.
People refer to uncontested divorce in many ways such as agreed divorce, amicable divorce and mutual divorce. The common theme of each is a peaceful and low conflict divorce.
