What Is an Uncontested Divorce?
An uncontested divorce is one in which you and your spouse can reach an agreement on all issues, including equitable division of marital assets and debts, child custody, and support. When a divorce is uncontested, you and your spouse can save yourselves the financial and emotional costs of a lengthy court proceeding.
Even if you and your spouse do not agree on all issues, you may find there are only a few issues you need help resolving. In these cases, it may be in your interest to resolve the issues through mediation or negotiation. Whenever you put your future in the hands of a judge, you risk an outcome that does not make anyone happy.

Pennsylvania is a no-fault divorce state, which means you can obtain a divorce through mutual consent, without proving at a hearing that your spouse is at fault and you are innocent of wrongdoing. Additionally, you can obtain a divorce after being separated for a period of two years, even if your spouse does not consent.
