Uncontested divorce does not mean that you and your spouse agree on everything right now. An uncontested divorce simply means that you and your spouse will reach an agreement on all issues before filing for divorce and will not ask a judge or jury to decide any issues for you. This makes the process of finalizing your divorce considerably less expensive and less stressful than a traditional litigated divorce.
In an uncontested divorce the main issues you must agree on include:
- division of property
- allocation of debt
- alimony (spousal support)
- child custody
- child support
If you and your spouse can generally agree on these issues, you are a good candidate for an uncontested divorce. Even if you and your spouse have a few minor disagreements or uncertainties, an uncontested divorce may still work for you.

It depends on many factors, including, in which county the divorce will be filed. Once every document is signed and filed with the Court, the Court will not grant the divorce for at least thirty-one (31) days. In most cases the divorce is finalized within a few months after the paperwork is filled out by the parties and filed with the court.
