What is an uncontested divorce?

June 27, 2010

An uncontested divorce may also be referred to as an agreed divorce. It is a divorce in which both parties agree to get divorced, agree to the terms of their divorce (property division, children issues, etc.) and voluntarily sign the divorce papers.  So, if the only thing you and your spouse agree on is the fact that you want a divorce, then you do not have an uncontested divorce.
