Realizing that you want a divorce can be a difficult decision. However, divorce does not always mean war. Some divorces are uncontested, meaning the parties (Petitioner and Respondent) agree on all pending matters. These divorces still need to be filed with the Courts; however, the parties avoid the strife and costs of a contested final hearing. Indiana is a No-Fault divorce state, meaning neither party has to allege any wrongdoing or prove the other is to blame.
During an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse have reached an agreement on issues such as (but not limited to) marital property, assets and debts, custody, parenting time, and child support. Regardless, if a divorce is contested or uncontested, you must wait at least 60 days before a divorce can be finalized in Indiana once the paperwork is filed. It's important to make sure your paperwork is comprehensive and meets the court's requirements.
