Uncontested Divorce


An uncontested divorce is one in which the parties have reached an agreement as to all issues relating to the dissolution of marriage. If the parties are not in agreement, the matter is considered contested.

Example of an Uncontested Divorce Proceeding:

A and B married in 2003. In 2006, A and B decide to obtain a divorce or dissolution of marriage. A and B do not have any minor children. During the marriage, A and B acquired a car, and a house. A and B agree that A will keep the house, and B will keep the car. A files for divorce. The parties are not contesting any issues. Therefore, this is an example of an uncontested divorce.

In Cook County, divorce matters are filed with the Cook County Circuit Clerk’s Office. If you need assistance with an uncontested divorce matter, call 847-701-4529.
