I'm a Baltimore county, maryland resident in the process of a uncontested, amicable divorce with two minor children that we share custody of.
Present to the court your proposed Judgment of Absolute Divorce which addresses all the issues in your divorce: custody, visitation, division of assets and debts, retirement, house, car, personal and real property, and anything else of importance to you both. Does the wife want to have her prior name restored? If so, then this should be stated in the Judgment. I recommend you consult with an attorney to make sure the Judgment is written properly, otherwise, you could make mistakes which would be very difficult and expensive to correct. It is always easier and less expensive to do legal things right the first time.
This is NOT legal advice, is GENERAL INFORMATION ONLY, and does NOT establish an Attorney/Client Relationship with you. Therefore my answer cannot address your specific legal situation and you should not rely upon my answer in your legal matter. I am an attorney licensed in Maryland and California.
The court will schedule an uncontested divorce hearing in front of a Master. You will need to bring a witness who can testify as to the ground of divorce you plead.

I am sorry but it is not as simple as counsel are stating. I don't know how much you make or if the custody is 50-50. Neither does the court. You should have the agreement memorialized and calculate how much child support should be paid even if neither is asking for it. You will need to convince the court why it is a good idea for support to be waived unless the amount is nominal.
I just finished meeting with a client who has messed up his "uncontested" divorce and it is costing more than I would have charged to handle in the first place.
