You can file a divorce, but it is up to your spouse to determine whether he or she wants to contest anything.

An "uncontested" divorce is where your spouse agrees with everything.

Yes you can. An "uncontested divorce," in terms of the documents that need to be prepared and filed, is really not much different that a regular, contested divorce. The biggest difference is that in an uncontested divorce, the other side either (1) never responds to your requests in the divorce papers, allowing you to have the final papers entered by default, or (2) agrees with your requests and final documents are entered by agreement.
