The Uncontested Divorce Process
An uncontested divorce is a divorce where the parties have agreed upon the terms of their divorce and are not contesting the terms of their divorce. An uncontested divorce may occur at any time after the parties have settled their divorce issues. If the parties settle their case with an agreement, the parties may seek an uncontested divorce hearing with the Court and put through the divorce. For those divorces where the other party does not answer the complaint and enters into default, the filing party may go forward with the divorce as a default with or without an agreement or a Notice of Proposed Judgment of Divorce, depending on whether their are issues that must be settled in the case. Generally, divorces where there are issues of child custody, child support, alimony or equitable distribution of assets, debts or liability require either an agreement or a NPJD, where the defaulting party is noticed of the proposed terms of the divorce. For those cases that reach agreement early on in the process and may seek an uncontested divorce early on in the process, a flat rate or flat fee for specific services in a limited uncontested divorce may be offered.
