Understanding an Uncontested Divorce in Morris County, NJ

Morris County Uncontested Divorce LawyersA divorce can be a long, stressful and costly part of any family. However, uncontested divorces can save your family time, money, and heart ache.  It is important to understand and prepare for an amicable divorce. This can be as little as having a discussion with your spouse about family assets, discussions around custody and many issues that arise from divorce. In the State of New Jersey, more that 8% or the population is divorced. According to the New Jersey Census Bureau, the median income for families with children is over $85,000. In counties with a higher median household income, like Morris County, the number increases to over $100,000.

The key discussions around an uncontested divorce involve: Custody of the children, child support, alimony, division of all property and assets, and the division of debt. If the couple can reach a mutually beneficial agreement, paper work can be submitted and the divorced finalized without a court hearing. All uncontested divorces differ case by case, but having the correct representation and open communication will help both parties separate amicably.

Uncontested Divorce Benefits

The main benefit of an uncontested divorce is the cost. However, there are other advantages. Finalizing a divorce as quickly and smoothly as possible allows for a speedy, peaceful recovery for all parties involved. Also, having an mediator or an attorney leading the negotiations instead of a judge could result in a more mutually beneficial separation. The key focus of an uncontested divorce is to stay out of the court room. This will cut costs and time substantially.

Alternative Solutions to an Uncontested Divorce

In many cases, couples that can’t meet a mutual agreement on all discussions should seek outside council immediately. Many times, major difference in income or core beliefs can elongate the divorce and increase conflict. However, working to resolve as many issues outside of court with an experienced attorney will speed up the process. In some cases, a divorcing couple can submit some issues through arbitration to protect assets and reduce any conflict.
