11 Apr Contested And Uncontested New Jersey Divorces – What Is The Difference?
Whenever any couple goes through a divorce, of course, there are a lot of decisions that must be made in regards to the children and marital assets, and it is seldom an easy task. Some divorces are easily obtained, while others take more effort to work out. The following is an overview of the differences between the two different types of divorces, contested and uncontested.
Firstly, every divorce has issues regarding the primary household. These may include:
• Division Of Marital Assets
• Child Custody
• Child Support
• Spousal Support
• Debt Division
Not all divorces are created equally, so you may or may not have all of these points of contention. Be that as it may, almost every divorce has something to “ solve” in the realm of a division of property.
A New Jersey Contested Divorce
If a divorcing couple cannot reach a reasonable and satisfactory agreement regarding the terms of the divorce, they will need to go to court to resolve it. This is known as a contested divorce. Most courts require divorcing couples who cannot agree to attend mediation before a court date is set. During mediation, both parties sit down with a mediator who is an impartial officer of the court. Both sides may have attorneys present, as well. Mediation is a process in which both sides negotiate for what they want in the divorce. If an agreement can be reached during mediation, there is no need to set a court date for a hearing or trial.
A New Jersey Uncontested Divorce
When a divorce is uncontested, it means that the couple has been able to come to a reasonable agreement regarding their finances, assets, and children. Of course, this is the type of divorce everyone wants but seldom gets. This must be an agreement that they both can be satisfied with and subsequently live with. No intervention is required by the court because this agreement has been reached mutually. Uncontested divorces are also much faster than contested divorces and cost far less than a lengthy court battle.
