What is an uncontested divorce?

An uncontested divorce is a means by which the parties decide to resolve their differences among themselves through the preparation of a marital settlement agreement. That marital settlement agreement usually resolves all of the issues between the parties. It could include the division of assets and liabilities, the timesharing with the children, child support, alimony. All of those issues can be contained in a marital settlement agreement. That marital settlement agreement is then introduced into court. The court then approves the marital settlement agreement and enters a final judgment of dissolution of marriage, which is essentially a long way of saying your divorce decree. This uncontested divorce is simply a faster, more cost-effective way to get divorced.
