Definition of Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce, otherwise known as an uncontested dissolution of marriage, is one in which both parties agree on every aspect of the case from start to finish. Topics about which parties must agree may include some or all of the following, depending upon the particular situation at hand: division of marital assets, division of debt, parenting time, visitation, custody, allocation of parental responsibilities, spousal maintenance (aka “alimony”), child support, parenting time (aka “visitation”).

If any issue cannot be agreed upon at the outset of the case, the divorce is not an uncontested divorce.
