What Is An Uncontested Divorce Case | Santa Clarita Divorce Help

Hi! My name is Tim Blankenship, owner of SCV Legal Doc Assist here in Santa Clarita. We’re licensed and bonded legal document preparation service and we specialize in the divorce process serving all of California.

Today we’re talking about what is an uncontested divorce. So, what I am going to do is take you to the court website and let you know what they’re telling us an uncontested divorce is, reference in the paperwork that has been processed.

So an uncontested case, is where you have filed for divorce and your spouse has responded by filing a response and you have or are going to enter into a written agreement..  That is really it.

Here is what the Court website says about what an uncontested divorce case is:

  • Your spouse or domestic partner filed a response to your summons and petition;

  • The two of you have a written agreement about your divorce or separation, dividing your property and debt, child custody and visitation, and support issues.

So in short, an uncontested divorce simply means you did not go before the judge and have a trial.

So anything short of having a trial means you have an uncontested divorce especially if you’re in agreement, there’s been either a summon and petition or just a petition filed not necessarily a response and the most important part is that you’ve entered into a written agreement and you did not have the trial.

We specialize in uncontested divorce cases, amicable divorce cases or any divorce where you and your spouse are going to try to work out the details of your divorce together and need someone like us for information and to process your divorce paperwork to make sure it was done correctly.
