  1. Yes, the parties may convert their divorce from one filed under 1B (Contested) to a 1A (Uncontested) as soon as they have reached agreement on each and every issue in their divorce.

    Mediation is a wonderful tool, but if you are both nearly in agreement, you may just want to save the expense and retain an attorney to work out any last minor issues, assemble your paperwork, prepare a legally sufficient separation agreement, and assist help you obtain a divorce.
