Is An Uncontested Divorce The Right Path For You?
The term “uncontested divorce” is a fairly broad one. It can include several different ways in which two parties who are divorcing come to an agreement about how to resolve the key issues, such as property division, child custody and spousal support.
At Fiorello, Puccio & Fiorello, L.L.C., in Wayne, our attorneys are skilled and experienced at helping New Jersey couples reach such agreements. If you are interested in an uncontested divorce, we can guide you through the process in ways that minimize stress for all concerned.
Finding The Right Way to Resolve Your Issues
Because each family is unique, it is very important to find the right procedural path to follow for your divorce. The options include:
- Mediation – If you have a child or children, you may want to use an impartial third party called a mediator to work out decisions with your spouse/co-parent about custody and visitation. The procedures in New Jersey Family Court allow for this. Our firm includes a certified mediator, and we can guide you through it toward a solution that is based on the best interests of the children involved.
- Collaborative divorce – In New Jersey, collaborative divorce is an alternative dispute resolution process in which the parties to a divorce try to settle the issues by working together with their attorneys in an open way. Other professionals, such as financial planners, are also involved as needed. We are very familiar with this process and can help you use it to craft a favorable outcome that works for you and your family.
- Litigation – Sometimes there are very contentious issues in a divorce that ultimately have to be litigated. Our attorneys can stick up for you and make sure that your goals are taken into account. In most cases, it should still be possible to come to an agreement with your spouse that doesn’t require the court to decide things for you.
