Uncontested Divorce Makes Good Sense For A Number Of Reasons

The term "uncontested divorce" most often is used in reference to a divorce in which both spouses agree to end the marriage and have no disputes over division of property, no financial disagreements, and usually no children or other contentious issues.

Most uncontested divorces still involve a lawyer, however, who will draft the documents that must be signed and filed with the county. Uncontested divorces are appealing because of their low cost, minimal stress and expediency. In fact, true uncontested divorces can be completed by email, fax or regular mail, as well as in person.
