If you are seeking separation from your spouse in New Jersey, you may be weighing the options of a contested vs. uncontested divorce. The route you choose depends on the specifics of your particular case. Contact our experienced New Jersey divorce attorneys today to schedule a free consultation and discuss your best options.
If you’re here, you may be considering divorce in New Jersey. You also might have heard the term contested divorce. A contested divorce is exactly what it sounds like; it’s when people don’t get along and they are contesting the relief the other party is seeking. They might be challenging child support, they might be challenging alimony, or they might be challenging parenting time. A good attorney steps in to take your contested matter and make it an uncontested matter to get it resolved quickly and efficiently.
I had a client ask me one time what an uncontested divorce in New Jersey is. An uncontested divorce in New Jersey is where all of your issues are resolved, whether it be through agreement between each of you or because your assets or issues presented in your case are not very complicated and are easily resolved. When that happens, your divorce process is generally pretty quick and pretty inexpensive.
I had a client consultation just the other day who was seeking to know about no fault divorces in New Jersey. No fault divorces in New Jersey are a little bit out of style at this point because they take 18 months of separation before you can even file a cause of action for divorce. Unless you really have no contact with your spouse, we would recommend filing for irreconcilable differences.
