Do You Have a Contested or Uncontested Divorce?
Many people assume that if both spouses agree on getting a divorce that the divorce will be uncontested. However, determining if a divorce is contested or uncontested has little to do with this agreement. As an East Brunswick uncontested divorce attorney with more than 30 years of experience, Jeffrey Goldblatt can readily identify if your divorce is contested or uncontested. Often, people who think they have an uncontested divorce actually have a contested divorce.
In an uncontested divorce, the parties agree on all of the issues. This means you and the other party must be in absolute agreement on property division, child custody, child support, alimony and all other issues. Even if the divorce is uncontested, you will need an East Brunswick uncontested divorce attorney to prepare and finalize the settlement agreement. We can often avoid going to trial using mediation or arbitration.
In a contested divorce, the parties disagree on at least one issue. This is more often the case, particularly when clients are involved in high-asset divorces or have closely held businesses. It is possible, in some cases, to begin a divorce contested and after negotiations file as uncontested.
Our law firm adeptly handles contested and uncontested divorce throughout Monmouth County and Middlesex County.
If you think you are involved in an uncontested divorce, you may be incorrect. The best way to find out is to speak with a skilled East Brunswick uncontested divorce attorney.
