What is an uncontested divorce?

Follow Us

An uncontested divorce is when both parties reach an agreement on all family issues, including child support and visitation, property division, and spousal support (if any).

Even with a signed settlement agreement between the couple, the divorce agreement must still be approved by the judge.  When there are no children involved, the majority of divorce agreements are approved.  However, when children are involved, the judge will hold both parties to strict standards before approving the agreement because it must take into account the best interest of the children.

Having an uncontested divorce and a negotiated settlement will work in your favor more than having a judge decide the matter for you.  In addition, the cost of an uncontested divorce is much lower than a contested one.  Matters will be resolved much more quickly – making the process an easy and quick one.

Ending a marriage is never easy regardless of the circumstances.  Not all divorces are uncontested; many are complex and difficult.  If you are currently going through a family law matter, such as a divorce, you know how difficult it can be to keep your emotions under control.  You may be having a difficult time making decisions or reaching resolutions.
