When both you and your spouse are in agreement about the divorce, there are two ways in which you can proceed. The first way is filing a simple “sole divorce.” In this type of application, either you or your spouse files the divorce application in court. Once the court processes and stamps the application, it will be served on the other spouse. Your spouse then has 30 days to contest or challenge the divorce, or make his or her own claim(s) for things like support, custody, or division of property. If your spouse does not challenge the divorce within the required period, the divorce will proceed as an “uncontested” divorce in the court system.
