Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce is one in which both parties agree on all aspects of the divorce. Divorces where both parties disagree on some aspects such as property or debt division or child custody are contested divorces and involve lengthy and expensive litigation. Uncontested divorces are quicker, smoother and less expensive because there is no reason for the divorce to go to trial and lawyers are either not needed or have a limited role to play. It is sometimes recommended to hire one for at least part of the process.
