An uncontested divorce is a divorce that is resolved without ever stepping into the courtroom. A common misconception that parties have is that their divorce is uncontested just because both parties want to be divorced. That is an important first step in the process.
However, in order for a case to remain uncontested, the parties must have a mutual understanding and agreement as to the issues in their case. These issues can involve custody, child support, maintenance, the sale of the marital residence, equitable distribution of the assets, including retirement accounts, and there are many other issues.
It is my job as your attorney to come up with the details and language of the stipulation that best protects you.
