Also known as no-fault or irreconcilable differences divorces, uncontested divorces are generally the most time effective and cost-saving option for couples going through a divorce. They require collaboration and agreement between the two parties – every issue must be reached by agreement, from alimony and child support to real estate division and visitation, and the spouses signatures on the filed Marital Dissolution Agreement (and Permanent Parenting Plan if minor children are involved) will reflect that attitude of cooperation.
If you are pursuing an uncontested divorce, your timeframe can be anywhere from 2.5 months to 6 months plus. It is all dependent upon how quickly you and your partner can agree on items, how quickly you get information to your lawyer for document drafting, how soon your lawyer is able to draft and file the appropriate documents, and whether or not minor children are involved (as the waiting period for divorces with minor children is a month longer than without).
When you have decided to get an amicable or simple divorce an uncontested divorce is likely your best option. Working to reach agreement quickly and calmly will result in a finalized divorce in the shortest amount of time and for the least cost to all parties.
