Uncontested Divorce


When most people think of a divorce, they think about a long and drawn-out process filled with emotional strain, courtroom battles, and loads of unhappiness with their ultimate result. Nobody really wants to go through this, and for some couples, they may not have to. If both spouses can come to an agreement on most of the major terms of their divorce on their own, you may be able to file for an uncontested divorce.

At McDonald Law Offices, PLLC, our Henderson divorce lawyers have considerable experience helping couples through all kinds of divorces. We may be able to assist you with coming to a mutually-beneficial agreement on the major terms of your divorce without having to bring your case before a judge. We have earned several industry distinctions, including being named in Super Lawyers Magazine, and receiving an AV® Preeminent™ rating from Martindale-Hubbell®.


In order to qualify for an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must come to a complete and mutually-beneficial agreement on all major factors in your divorce. If you cannot reach one of these agreements on your own, or if the judge who reviews your divorce finds any aspect of it unfair, your agreement will not be accepted and your divorce case will become contested.

  • You must be in agreement on all major factors, including:
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Alimony/maintenance
  • Property division
  • Rules for communication

Uncontested divorces are rare and do take a considerable amount of negotiation work with your spouse, but ultimately most couples who complete an uncontested divorce end up being significantly happier with their end result, knowing that their agreed-upon terms are mutually beneficial for themselves and their family. This also leads to far less resentment and negative emotion towards their spouse, and a much more productive environment for children.
