Is an Uncontested Divorce Right for You?
Many people think a divorce is a long and emotionally-charged battle between you and your spouse that will ultimately leave everybody worse off. However, options do exist for couples who can come to a mutual agreement on the big factors in a divorce without the need for courtroom litigation. This option, known as an “uncontested divorce” can save couples time, money, and a lot of frustration and turmoil that is traditionally associated with a divorce.

Qualifying for an Uncontested Divorce
In order to be eligible to file for an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must agree on all major factors in your divorce. You can come to this agreement on your own outside of the courtroom, but must be in agreement before filing with the court system.
In order to qualify for an uncontested divorce, you must agree on factors, including:
- Child custody
