Uncontested-Divorce Legal Services in New Jersey


Thankfully, not every divorce ends with both parties at each other's throats. If you're still on good terms with your partner at the time of your separation, you both may be looking to avoid the long, arduous, and emotionally-painful trial in court and instead, may choose to amicably separate your assets. This is always the best outcome in a divorce, but especially a divorce involving children. Going the route of an uncontested divorce when you have kids offers the opportunity to spare them from the significant emotional trauma that sometimes accompanies contested divorces, particularly if both parties can agree to things like alimony and visitation rights. 

Like anything having to do with family law in New Jersey, there are going to be preliminary issues that need to be sorted out before an uncontested divorce is approved, which is ultimately finalized by a judge. These include issues of residence and the legal grounds for your divorce, such as irreconcilable differences between you and your spouse, just to name a few.

While you can technically wade through the process of uncontested divorce without the help of an attorney, there are benefits to seeking out representation, specifically by a law firm that focuses extensively on Family Law and Divorce in New Jersey to ensure a smooth, equitable outcome that feels fair to you.

Like many types of cases, these processes can be difficult for anyone regardless of income, socioeconomic status, education, or raw intelligence. Without having someone in your corner guiding you and looking over the process, your divorce may conclude with a vastly different outcome than you'd planned should a mistakes and shortfall arise when going at it alone. In every single divorce, we would always recommend obtaining representation by an attorney experienced in divorce to ensure your needs and requirements are met. 

If you feel like an uncontested divorce is something you or your spouse might be interested in, contact our team of New Jersey divorce lawyers today for us to help you avoid messy, convoluted contested divorce proceedings.
