A simplified divorce, also known as an uncontested divorce, is one in which the parties agree on all major issues such as division of property, child support, and child custody. Couples who are willing to negotiate and who wish to divorce expeditiously often choose a simplified divorce.

This video explains the simplified divorce and how it differs from a contested proceeding. While it may require significant negotiations, parties who can mutually agree on a division of assets and other major issues can save themselves considerable time and money. The video points out that a couple may file a simplified divorce and still retain a family lawyer for assistance in explaining important rights and obligations.
