Of course the quick answer to this question is no, however in today’s day and age, divorce between couples is certainly not an uncommon occurrence. In fact, according to the OC Register, Orange County has one of the highest divorce rates in the nation.

What is an Uncontested Divorce?
In California, an uncontested divorce is generally categorized as a “simple” case. Uncontested divorces occur when both partners in the relationship are able to come to a resolution on all terms. In uncontested divorces, the process is much more manageable for both parties. Often, instead of resolving the issues of the divorce case in court, they can be handled by mail.
How Does an Uncontested Divorce Differ from a Contested Divorce?
A divorce case becomes “contested” when the spouses in the relationship are unable to agree on one or more issues. If this is the circumstance, the case becomes contested. A judge’s assistance is often needed to resolve the conflict if they are not resolved in mediation or through negotiations. A divorce case is generally classified as uncontested when both spouses can agree on issues such as property division, child support, spousal support, and other financial and marital conflicts. Although court time is inevitable for both contested and uncontested divorces, uncontested divorce cases are typically dealt with at a much faster pace and are less expensive than the cases in contested divorces.
What Happens in an Uncontested Divorce Case?
In an uncontested divorce case, many people do not use attorneys. This is often a major error in judgment. Unfortunately, many individuals involved in uncontested divorces surrender rights that they were not aware they had. These rights include: spousal support (previously referred to as alimony), the division of pension benefits, income from properties owned as well as other sources of income.
