If this is the case for you and your spouse, you may have already sat down together to discuss issues about custody, parenting schedules, who will keep the house and other issues related to property and spousal support. This is commonly referred to as an ‘uncontested’ or ‘amicable’ divorce.
It comes as a surprise to many people, though, when a minor legal details throws a wrench into the works.
