I live in MD and my wife and I have been separated since 12/10. She filed the Complaint for divorce "uncontested" (and filed our signed/notarized separation agreement as well). She filed a day too early so I had to file an Amended Complaint (which was also uncontested). She filed her answer to the Amended Complaint but now she is filing contested. Can she do that? What will the process be now?
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
An uncontested divorce is one in which spouses agree on relevant issues such as division of property, child custody/support, and alimony.
