It is not uncommon for people to be confused by the phrase “uncontested divorce.” An uncontested divorce is different from an amicable divorce. While you can have an amicable, uncontested divorce, you can also have an amicable divorce process where some of the terms are not fully agreed upon until each spouse has a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities.
When truly uncontested, the parties agree upon everything—from the decision to divorce, to the entire parenting plan for any children, to the division of marital assets, debts, and payment of support. In situations when the marriage is of short duration, there are no children, no disparity of incomes, and a full agreement on how to divide marital assets, then a simple, uncontested divorce is possible. However, if the couple lacks alignment on any of these variables, another process option like mediation or collaborative divorce would meet the goal of an amicable, if not uncontested, divorce.
