Step Seven – Filing Contested or Uncontested or Partially Contested

If you’ve tried to resolve your issues amicably, and you and your spouse cannot reach any agreement, which is sometimes the case with divorcing spouses, then you have to file to move forward.

If you have successfully reached an agreement that covers everything, you have successfully secured an uncontested divorce. Congratulations!

If you have successfully reached a preliminary agreement on some issues, but have reserved others for either litigation or arbitration, the proper partial settlement forms and agreements will have to be drafted and filed.
