It happens when one party files their divorce petition, and the other party does not contest or object to the terms laid out in the petition. These terms can cover areas such as division of assets and debts, spousal support, and child custody. If the other party doesn’t respond to the petition simply because they agree with the terms, they will receive a default divorce. A default divorce can also occur when the second party doesn’t respond in time, or if they can’t be located for process service.
