Sioux Falls Uncontested Divorce
Providing Family Law Clients with Compassion & Guidance
An uncontested divorce is one in which the two parties have come to a mutual agreement concerning the dissolution of their marriage and its related issues. Uncontested divorces proceed much faster due to the fact that the case is not taken to court. These divorces tend to be less expensive, less time-consuming, and less stressful for all involved. An uncontested divorce still must be done according to South Dakota law which involves extensive legal paperwork.

Requirements to Complete an Uncontested Divorce
As South Dakota is a no-fault divorce state, generally, an uncontested divorce can be based on irreconcilable differences. This means that the marriage is irretrievably broken and beyond repair. Other fault grounds may also be used in the filing, such as adultery, willful neglect, cruelty, habitual intemperance (alcohol abuse), or abandonment.
To proceed with an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must have agreed on such issues as:
- Child custody and visitation rights
- Child support
- Division of marital property and assets
- Division of debts
- Any other related matters, such as who will live in the marital home
You must be a resident of South Dakota to initiate the divorce proceedings. There is no minimum time limit as to how long you have lived in the state.
Our Sioux Falls uncontested divorce attorneys can provide the legal advice you need regarding your divorce and ensure that the process is accurately completed and submitted according to South Dakota law.
