Hire our Attorney to Help you Save Time & Money
As its name suggests, an uncontested divorce is one in which both partners
come to mutual agreement. Both spouses have agreed to the divorce, and

Once a divorce has been filed by either spouse, it is up to the court to

Uncontested divorce vs. dissolution of marriage
While similar, uncontested divorce and
dissolution of marriage are different. For a dissolution, there needs to be the absence of fault
alleged by one spouse to the other. In an uncontested marriage, there
is still alleged fault, but the spouses still agree that their marriage
should end and work on their divorce terms together.
In both cases, negotiating the post-marriage matters (custody, support,
etc.) is most critical. Vigilant, knowledgeable representation is recommended
for both spouses during this process to ensure that their final agreements
are amicable and fair.
