WHAT TYPES OF DIVORCE CAN COUPLES FILE IN NEW JERSEY?

In New Jersey, there are two types of divorce: contested and uncontested. If you and your soon-to-be ex agree to divorce terms, it’s considered an uncontested divorce. In most uncontested divorce cases, couples do not have children or have not been married for very long. Generally speaking, there are not many assets to divide, as well. However, if the two of you cannot come to terms with the issues involved in your divorce case, it will be considered a contested divorce. We have guided many clients through uncontested, low cost divorce.

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS BEFORE FILING FOR DIVORCE IN NEW JERSEY

New Jersey divorce proceedings can become quite complex, but a divorce lawyer at Bond & Posluszny will help protect your rights. Uncontested divorces are far less complicated and usually require only one appearance in court. Contested divorces, however, may become lengthy and difficult. Here are a few steps you should expect to take when filing:

  1. You must have a legally valid reason to end your marriage. (For example, irreconcilable differences is a valid reason in New Jersey.)

  2. You must file a divorce complaint and your spouse must receive copies of those divorce papers.

  3. If uncontested, your spouse must sign the papers and send them to the court.

  4. If your spouse contests the terms, he or she must file papers to dispute the terms.

  5. Several court appearances may be necessary to negotiate the disputes.

  6. If your spouse fails to file an Answer to the Complaint within 35 days, a default judgment of divorce can be entered against that spouse and the divorce will proceed anyway in some situations.

  7. Disputes involving property division, alimony, child support and custody require negotiation—either in or out of court.
