A: You can either come to an agreement or file a contested divorce and resolve the issue in the divorce proceeding. You might also consider mediation as an alternative if you think there is a possibility that a third party might be able to facilitate an agreement with your wife.

A: If you don't agree then you don't have an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce requires an agreement on everything. If not you file for divorce and have the other spouse served.
