A: An uncontested divorce is a divorce where the spouses have no disagreements over any issues related to the marriage. This means that the spouses have divided all of their marital property/assets, debts, and spousal support. If child custody, visitation, and child support are in dispute, those matters can be taken care of in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court. The Circuit Court is the court that grants a divorce. If child custody, visitation or child support is raised as a divorce issue in the Circuit Court, then the divorce is a contested one.
