An uncontested divorce, or dissolution of marriage, is one wherein both spouses agree on how to divide assets, liabilities, real property, parenting responsibility, time sharing, child support, alimony, etc., usually before filing a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. When the divorce is not contested, the Court may enter a final judgment in as little as 20 days from the date the action is filed.
This is not the same as a simplified dissolution of marriage, which requires that the parties have no minor children in common, make no claim for alimony, agree on the division of assets and liabilities, and certain other procedural requirements.
