What Is Uncontested Divorce?

In an uncontested divorce, otherwise known as a “simple divorce,” the spouses agree on some or all aspects of the divorce, and one spouse hires a lawyer to provide the necessary paperwork to effect those terms. It is usually the quickest and easiest type of separation possible.

Spouses must agree on the following for an uncontested divorce:

If you and your spouse can agree on all aspects listed above, you can proceed with the uncontested divorce. However, if you find yourself unable to agree on one of the items, your divorce will be considered contested, and you might have to go to trial. This is one reason why representation is for one spouse and a single lawyer cannot represent both spouses.

Michigan isn’t a state with an expedited timeline for uncontested cases, but it will move through the system more quickly than if you went straight to trial and waited for a judge’s decision. The divorce either can be a default, meaning the spouse who receives the divorce papers could choose to not respond to the plaintiff, or can end with a written agreement.
