The Uncontested Divorce Process
You and Your Spouse Agree on Division of Assets and Child and Spousal Support
You and your spouse must agree on all major issues relating to the divorce, including (1) how to divide your property and assets and (2) arrangements for any children. We'll create a marital settlement agreement based upon your questionnaire answers.
Prepare a Petition
The spouse initiating the divorce prepares a petition for a divorce. If you're the petitioning spouse, you create, review, sign and notarize (if required) the petition.
File the Petition with the Court
Next, you file the signed petition at the courthouse in the county where you live. We'll provide you with easy-to-follow instructions.
Filed Court Documents Are Delivered to Your Spouse
After you've filed the divorce documents with the court, a copy of the documents, along with other required paperwork, must be delivered to your spouse.
Your Spouse Signs Documents
Your spouse signs the required documents, then returns them to you to file with the court.
Hearing Scheduled, If Required
Although there is no court trial in an uncontested divorce, a hearing before a judge may be required to finalize the divorce. The court will provide this information to you.
- Attend the Hearing, If Required, and Finalize Your Divorce
The last step in an uncontested divorce is when the final judgment of divorce is entered. This sometimes requires a short court hearing.
