What is an "Uncontested Divorce"?

Simply put, in Virginia, a divorce is considered “uncontested” when a couple has been separated for 1 year (or 6 months when there is a signed property settlement agreement and no minor children) and the spouses have agreed on major issues involved in getting a divorce, including: 

  • Sharing parenting time and responsibilities
  • Amount and duration of child support
  • Amount and duration of spousal support (alimony)
  • Division of property
  • Division of debt  

Before you stress over divorce papers, SimpleSplit helps you, through a series of online simple questions, determine whether you qualify to file an uncontested divorce.
