As an experienced New Jersey Divorce Lawyer I am often asked about the uncontested divorce process. Most divorces start off contested. Contested divorces mean that you and your spouse have issues that need to be resolved before you can get divorced. Once you and your spouse resolve those issues with the help of an attorney, or an expert, or a mediator, then your matter moves into an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce simply means that you and your spouse have come to an agreement. We wrote those terms down on a piece of paper and everybody signed. Then we can call the courthouse, let the court know that you and your spouse have agreed to all the terms, and we have an executed property settlement agreement or marital settlement agreement. The court will then schedule a time for you to come in with your attorney and schedule an uncontested divorce hearing.
