Yes, it is possible to file for an uncontested divorce when you have children.  All that means is that you agree on everything and are not fighting about custody, visitation, support, or distribution of marital assets.  The fees for same are set by each attorney (except for filing fees which are not legal fees).  I would call your local bar association for a referral.  The child support is generally set by statute but can be modified.  Good luck.
