- People often call to request an appointment to discuss an uncontested divorce.
- The term, uncontested, applies only to cases in which one spouse is not present, not appearing in the divorce, or has withdrawn all opposition to the divorce.
- Clients sometimes think their case will be uncontested, simply because both sides are in general agreement; however, during the course of actually formalizing the divorce, that may change.
- You may resolve your case and reach an agreement in short order, but that is not, strictly speaking, an uncontested divorce.
- If you can’t find your spouse and are certain they will make no appearance in the court proceeding, yours may, in fact, be a true uncontested divorce.
