As an experienced Hackensack Divorce Lawyer I am often asked what the difference is between a contested divorce and an uncontested divorce. The difference between contested and uncontested divorce is whether there are issues in your case that need to be resolved or not. An uncontested divorce case means you have resolved all the issues. What are some of those issues: child support, custody, alimony, evaluation of a business, equitable distribution, splitting up the cars, or splitting up the retirement assets. Once those kinds of issues have been resolved, then your matter moves into the uncontested phase.
