Uncontested Divorce vs No-Fault Divorce – what’s the difference?

Posted on Feb 16, 2010 by Hofheimer Family Law

An uncontested divorce means that all issues between you and your husband are resolved. There are no disputes as they relate to money, the children, the house, the debt, everything is settled preferably in a written separation agreement. A no-fault divorce simply means that there are no fault grounds. It simply means that you're not filing on adultery or desertion, cruelty and so forth but issues relating to the children, support, retirement, the house could still be at issue. So while all uncontested divorces are no fault, no-fault divorces are not necessarily uncontested.
