If I'm getting divorced and my wife wants nothing, will the courts allow me to have everything?
Question Details: She just wants to be done with it and move back to her country. It's not a contested divorce, and we are not even using lawyers. She wants nothing at all - the house and car are the big items. So, will the courts just allow this or will they be dumb and make it complicated?
Although it is not possible to predict how a court will rule in any particular case, the fact that this is an uncontested divorce should result in the court allowing the parties to carry out their agreed upon division of the property.
