What is the process for filing an uncontested divorce?
What is the process for filing an uncontested divorce? At the time of the initial office conference and after you have paid the required retainer fee, the attorney will draft the Original Petition for Divorce and file said document with the court. Then the attorney will forward a copy of the Original Petition for Divorce to you and your spouse, along with a Waiver of Citation.
Your attorney will also give you a packet with information that will be needed to draft the Final Decree of Divorce. Once that packet is returned, the attorney will prepare the Final Decree of Divorce. Typically, it is our practice to have all the documents ready and signed by both parties, so that the case may be finalized on the 61st day (unless there are retirement accounts in which case it generally takes longer).
