An uncontested divorce, also known as a collaborative divorce, is a type of divorce where both spouses agree to all related divorce issues, meaning neither party is contesting a single family law issue.
An uncontested divorce is both cheaper and takes significantly less time to finalize the divorce. An uncontested divorce can take as little as four to five weeks to be approved by the court and finalized.
In an uncontested divorce, it may not be necessary for either party to appear if the marital settlement agreement is properly filed, however there may be situations where the judge orders a formal or informal hearing prior to approving the divorce and making it final.
It is important to ensure that all of your Marital Settlement Agreement documents are filled out properly and in order. Any errors could delay the process.
If a judge orders a formal or informal hearing, many times it is for clarification and validation that both divorcing spouses are in full agreement regarding the Marital Settlement Agreement. The judge may see the Marital Settlement Agreement and see what he or shes as an imbalance in the settlement agreement, and thus seek clarification and validation by both parties.
