Uncontested Divorce means that there are no contested issues in dispute between the parties. All factors, i.e. marital home, assets, debts, custody, visitation, alimony, child support, even the family dog, have been amicably resolved between the Husband and Wife.

Parties have the option of filing with the Pro Se, or self help division, generally found at the family division at the Courthouse. Otherwise, attorneys are happy to assist parties in filing uncontested divorces for a minimal fee. Both parties must sign and agree with all issues, hence the term: uncontested.
