Uncontested divorce in New Jersey

Having decided to file for divorce in NJ, the couples can do it in two ways:

  • Initiate a contested dissolution. This type of divorce is inevitable when a couple is unable to agree on important matters such as alimony, property division, or child support and custody. In this case, both parties have to hire an attorney to represent them in court. Besides, they have to present their cases in front of a judge and testify so that he or she can make a fair decision. Contested divorce usually takes months to be finalized, and both spouses have to spend thousands of dollars on legal assistance.
  • File for an uncontested divorce. This option works for those couples who are in a full agreement concerning any aspect of their marriage dissolution. In this case, the service of a lawyer is not necessarily required because spouses are able to represent themselves in court. The hearing also won’t take a lot of time, and the divorce will be finalized as soon as the waiting period established by the state law is over.

However, filing for uncontested dissolution, you still have to face a lot of struggles. One of them is working with forms. The main challenge is that you have to find, collect, and fill out all the documents required for your specific case without any mistakes. If you can’t afford to hire a lawyer and decide to look for the forms on the Web, you need to be aware of the fact that there a lot of outdated and incorrect documents out there, and you may end up getting a rejection from the court.

Getting a divorce in New Jersey with a child

Child custody and support are important aspects that have to be resolved before the couple files for divorce.

  • New Jersey court requires the spouses with minor children to take parenting classes before filing for a divorce. This requirement is set for both parents.
  • In NJ, parents are usually advised to cooperate and develop a detailed parenting plan to present it with the court.
  • While granting custody, the judge is more inclined to the parent who provided primary care, also taking into consideration health of the parents and the child. The judge also takes into account conduct of the spouses, history of abuse and neglect, child’s relationships with both parents, financial and household situations, etc.
  • If the child appears to be mature enough to make a decision, his or her wishes are taken into consideration as well.
