While divorce is never easy or pleasant, spouses who can agree on child custody, child and spousal support and property division may be able to end their marriage through an uncontested divorce proceeding. As a family law attorney, I represent clients in the Cape May County area and throughout South Jersey who wish to resolve their marriage out of court when they can reach an agreement on essential matters. There are legal requirements that must be satisfied even in an uncontested divorce, however, so it is in your best interest to be represented by an experienced attorney who will protect your rights throughout the process. I will guide you through the legal process and ensure you are fully informed at each step.
Even when couples believe that they agree on all aspects of their divorce, complications can arise. I will make sure that you are ready and able to move forward after reviewing issues such as:
Though many couples are motivated to seek an uncontested divorce to avoid a lengthy legal process, I will make sure that no relevant matter is missed as you look to start a new chapter in your lives. I understand the stress involved in any divorce and truly care about your welfare now and in the future.
An uncontested divorce offers clients a more streamlined legal process. By agreeing to important financial and parental issues, you can often save time, money and the stress of a protracted legal battle. You can also avoid a public court proceeding, ensuring your privacy and that of your children. It is important to consider, however, that spouses can change their minds, even in the most amicable breakups, so it is imperative that your attorney represents your interests throughout the process and helps you reach an agreement that leaves nothing to chance. Information that gets overlooked when the marriage is dissolved can lead to negative consequences that extend far into the future. I am often contacted by people who were pressured by their spouse to sign a settlement agreement as part of an uncontested divorce without first speaking to an attorney. After signing the agreement, sometimes years later, they find out that the agreement was not in their best interest or extremely unfair to them. These agreements are often difficult or impossible to change later on. I urge people to always speak with an attorney before signing any settlement agreements their spouse presents to them. I will ensure your divorce terms meet your needs and goals, so you can move forward with confidence and peace of mind.
