A divorce may be categorized as uncontested or contested. An uncontested divorce is essentially a divorce where the parties have agreed upon the terms of their divorce, that may occur early on in the process or later in the process after the case has litigated as a contested matter for some time. If you can agree upon your terms of divorce early on, an uncontested divorce may be put through with the court within three to four months of the filing of the complaint. If only one party is pursuing the divorce and the other party is not putting in an appearance or answer, then the case may proceed as a default divorce. Regardless, as soon as the parties agree upon the terms of their divorce in an agreement, generally called the matrimonial or property settlement agreement, the divorce may be put through with the Court. Similarly, with an annulment.
