What is an Uncontested Divorce?
An uncontested divorce occurs when both parties involved in the dissolution of the marriage can reach an agreement on all relevant issues, such as division of assets, child custody, child support, and spousal support. This type of divorce is typically faster, less expensive, and more amicable than a contested divorce.

Do I Have to go to Court for Uncontested Divorce?
In Virginia, you may not always have to go to court for an uncontested divorce. If there is a complete agreement between spouses, Virginia law provides a simplified procedure known as a "Divorce by Affidavit" or "Divorce by Agreement."
In this process, the spouse seeking the divorce, known as the "plaintiff," can file a divorce complaint and an affidavit confirming that the couple meets the legal requirements for an uncontested divorce. The affidavit will detail their mutual agreement on all relevant issues. After filing the paperwork, the court will review the documents, and if everything is in order and meets the legal criteria, they may grant the divorce without requiring a court hearing.
However, there are instances where a brief court hearing may still be necessary, such as when child custody is involved. The court may request a hearing to ensure that the custody arrangement is in the child's best interest.
Consulting with an experienced Fairfax uncontested divorce attorney from Wexell Milman is highly recommended. We can guide you through the process, ensuring you meet all legal requirements and properly complete the necessary paperwork for an uncontested divorce in Virginia.
