What is an “uncontested divorce”?

April 06, 2017

By Keffer Hirschauer LLP

An “uncontested divorce” can occur when a couple can approach the court in agreement about the terms of their divorce. That generally means that all matters relating to the marriage including finances, child custody, property division and potentially other matters have been resolved between the couple. This is usually done privately and oftentimes quickly, between the couple, while accompanied by their respective attorney.

The benefits of an uncontested divorce include: efficiency, cost, flexibility, and amicability. Also and importantly, pursuing and completing an uncontested divorce can often be easier on children and other family members that may be affected by the split.
