What is Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce is a type of divorce in which both parties agree to the terms of the divorce without the need for litigation or court intervention. In an uncontested divorce, the spouses agree on all issues related to the divorce, including property division, alimony, child custody, and child support. They then prepare and sign a written agreement, which outlines the terms of their divorce.

Obtaining an uncontested divorce can be relatively quick and straightforward, as it does not involve the time, expense, and stress of a trial or contested divorce. Instead, the parties can work together to come to a mutually acceptable agreement that meets the needs of both parties and any children involved.

What are the Grounds for a Divorce in New Jersey?

In New Jersey, there are several grounds for divorce, which are as follows:

  • Irreconcilable differences: This is the most common ground for divorce in New Jersey. It means that irreconcilable differences between the parties have caused the marriage breakdown for six months or more, and there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation.
  • Adultery: This ground for divorce is based on one spouse’s extramarital affair. It must be proven by clear and convincing evidence.
  • Desertion: This ground for divorce is based on one spouse abandoning the other spouse for 12 months or more without any intention of returning.
  • Extreme cruelty: This ground for divorce is based on physical or mental cruelty that endangers the health or safety of the other spouse. The cruelty may be a pattern of behavior or a single act.
  • Imprisonment: This ground for divorce is based on one spouse being sentenced to prison for 18 or more months after marriage.
  • Drug or alcohol abuse: This may also be grounds for divorce if it has caused the marriage breakdown and there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation. This could include addiction to drugs or alcohol, as well as behavior such as substance abuse that is detrimental to the health and well-being of the other spouse or the children.
  • Deviant sexual behavior: This may be grounds for divorce if it has caused the marriage breakdown and there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation. This could include behaviors such as adultery, sodomy, or other sexual acts considered deviant or abnormal.

What are the Requirements for an Uncontested Divorce in New Jersey?

In New Jersey, an uncontested divorce can be granted if the following requirements are met:

  • Residency: You or your spouse must have been a resident of New Jersey for at least one year before filing the divorce complaint.
  • Separation: If you and your spouse have been living separately and apart for at least 18 consecutive months, there is a rebuttable presumption that irreconcilable differences exist.
  • Agreement: Both you and your spouse must agree on all issues related to the divorce, including property division, alimony, child custody, and child support. You must also sign a written agreement outlining your divorce’s terms.
  • Paperwork: You must file a complaint for divorce with the court and provide all necessary paperwork, including the written agreement, a case information statement, and other required forms.
  • Court Appearance: In some cases, you may be required to appear in court for a brief hearing to finalize the divorce.

It is important to note that these requirements may vary depending on the specific circumstances of your case.

What are the Advantages of an Uncontested Divorce?

There are several advantages of an uncontested divorce, including the following:

  • Cost: Uncontested divorces are generally less expensive than contested divorces, as they involve fewer court hearings, less attorney time, and fewer legal fees.
  • Time: Uncontested divorces can be completed more quickly than contested divorces, as there is no need to wait for a court date or to go through a lengthy trial process.
  • Control: In an uncontested divorce, the parties have more control over the outcome, as they can work together to reach a mutually acceptable agreement.
  • Privacy: Uncontested divorces are typically less public than contested divorces, as there is no need to air your matters in a public court.
  • Reduced stress: Uncontested divorces can be less stressful than contested divorces, as they involve less conflict and animosity between the parties.
  • Children: An uncontested divorce can be less disruptive to children as it involves less conflict and may allow the parties to co-parent more effectively.

How Long Does an Uncontested Divorce Take?

The time it takes to obtain an uncontested divorce in New Jersey can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the issues involved and the court’s caseload. However, generally speaking, an uncontested divorce can be completed relatively quickly compared to a contested divorce.

In New Jersey, a mandatory waiting period is 35 days from the date of service of the divorce complaint before a divorce can be granted. After the 35-day waiting period, the parties may submit their written agreement to the court for review and approval.

Assuming that the written agreement is approved, the court will issue a final divorce judgment. Depending on the court’s schedule, this process typically takes a few weeks to a few months.

Any issues arising during the negotiation process can impact the timeline for an uncontested divorce. If the parties cannot agree on all matters, the divorce will become contested and may take longer to resolve.

New Jersey Alimony Lawyers

Can alimony payments be modified after they've been established?

Yes, alimony payments can be modified if there’s a significant change in circumstances, such as a job loss, disability, or change in income. Our experienced New Jersey alimony lawyers can help you understand post-divorce modifications.

What's the difference between rehabilitative and open durational alimony?

Rehabilitative alimony provides temporary spousal support while the recipient spouse seeks education or training to become self-supporting. Open durational alimony, on the other hand, is often awarded in long-term marriages and doesn’t have a predetermined end date.

Why is legal representation crucial when dealing with alimony matters?

Alimony cases involve complex legal considerations and financial intricacies. Having skilled New Jersey alimony lawyers by your side ensures you handle the process effectively, negotiate fair terms, and safeguard your financial future.
