A divorce can be either uncontested or contested. An uncontested divorce typically involves the two spouses discussing their divorce issues on their own, with a mediator, or with attorneys, and then coming to an agreement on all of the issues. Then typically one of the party’s attorneys prepares a Marital Settlement Agreement and the other party’s attorney reviews it. Upon both parties voluntarily signing the Marital Settlement Agreement it becomes binding. The parties then proceed through the Courts to obtain their divorce decree.
