There are many terms used that identify a divorce that is uncontested; those include agreed divorce, dissolution, or uncontested divorce/dissolution. Collaborative cases may ultimately be uncontested but generally involve more discussion and negotiation of issues before the uncontested paperwork may be filed.
If you and your spouse agree on the terms of the dissolution, you can file together with an Agreement and do a complete dissolution without the necessary to appear in court.
Agreement means that you agree to all terms: division of assets, division of debts, non-marital assets, and spousal support, if any. Assets should include discussion regarding real estate, personal property, investment and bank accounts, retirement and pensions and any other property. If there are children involved, it should include custody, child support, division of expenses, parenting time, holidays, vacations, health insurance and division of uncovered medical expenses, extracurricular activities and decision making authority.
If everything can be agreed, many attorneys (including me) will provide a fixed fee pricing for preparation of all paperwork. This varies, depending on whether there are children or not as well as if there are other documents required for division of retirement, transfer of real estate in addition to the filing fees which vary by county.
