What is an Uncontested Divorce?
There are two basic forms of divorce; contested and uncontested. Contested divorces are much more volatile and time-consuming. They happen when your spouse spends thousands of dollars to hire a lawyer to fight with you.
An uncontested divorce means your spouse will not hire an attorney to contest the divorce once notified. Terms of the Divorce are decided by you. (ex. Custody,child support, alimony, property etc.
How Long Does an Uncontested Divorce Take?
This is a quick and easy process that doesn’t require a lot of time. Our experienced team will quickly take note of the details, acquire the necessary forms, double check for errors, before filing them. A regular uncontested divorce process takes 4 to 8 weeks in New Jersey if your partner is willing to sign.
If the spouse is unwilling to sign, the process can take about 1 month longer. We will hire a sheriff on your behalf to deliver the divorce papers to your spouse, which removes the need for the initial signature. The sheriff charges a small fee, usually around $50.
