A Sparta, NJ uncontested divorce attorney from our firm can help you out.
Can an Uncontested Divorce Help Me Avoid Court?
The main reason that couples have to go to court over and over again when they get a divorce is that they cannot come to an agreement on anything. This is a contested divorce, and it is quite common. There are some big decisions to be made with ramifications for the future. Add in the fact that many divorcing couples have a hard time staying civil with each other, and you do not exactly have a recipe for fruitful negotiations on your hands.
However, if you really want to avoid court, you have to agree with your spouse on some things. In an uncontested divorce you need to be able to discuss some weighty topics and come to an accord with your spouse. It can be tough, but it can all be worth it when you look at the time and money you save. An added benefit is that this method can be less stressful for you, your spouse, and your children.
What Needs to Be Agreed Upon in an Uncontested Divorce?
In order to move forward with an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse need to agree on the following:
- Alimony or spousal support
- The division of property
- Child custody, support, and visitation
- The grounds for your divorce
If you can come to an agreement on all of these things, then you can avoid court and lengthy legal battles.
