As an experienced New Jersey Divorce Lawyer I am often asked about the differences between contested and uncontested divorces. If it’s a contested divorce, that generally means you’re going to have a trial and you’re not going to have an agreement on the issues. For example, agreeing to a term of years of alimony and an amount, agreeing to a custody parenting schedule. An uncontested divorce is going to be a divorce action where you have an agreement, meaning you have a document, you’ve signed, you’ve negotiated it, you’ve gone back and forth, and you’re going to submit it to the court for a judgment of divorce. In contested divorce, you’re going to submit your position and you’re going to ask the court to have a little trial and make a determination for you. I always say to people, “You want to control what you can control, so control your own resolution and negotiate it.” There’s three things to remember when you’re in that process of this divorce. One, settle your case. Two, settle your case, Three, settle your case.
