An uncontested divorce is one in which the parties are able to agree to a division of marital property, debts, child custody, and support.
Uncontested divorces don’t require close supervision from the court or refereeing from a judge, so they are typically faster and less expensive than a contested divorce action, where the parties can’t resolve the disposition of their assets or want to fight over custody and other matters.
If you have a choice in the matter, you probably want an uncontested divorce, as the other kind can drag on for months, drain your bank accounts, and leave you emotionally exhausted.
