Not all divorces have to be dramatic, like the long, drawn-out battles, emotionally torturous events you see on TV. And, not all divorces have to cost thousands of dollars. New Jersey has an option called an uncontested divorce that can be implemented if you and your soon-to-be ex can agree on all key items in the divorce. Once filed, the uncontested divorce can be quicker, cleaner, and more civilized than a contested divorce. If you and your spouse don’t need to get a judge involved to divide up your assets then you may qualify for an uncontested divorce which can save you time and money.  


Even if you are on good terms with your spouse, AG Law recommends you hire a qualified lawyer to advise you. There are several things that you and your spouse must fully agree upon to qualify for an uncontested divorce, and by getting expert advice, you’ll be sure that you’re getting the best deal and that nothing was missed. AG Law can advise you on each item and what’s best for you as you work through them with your spouse. In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse will be deciding how to handle:

  • Alimony (also known as spousal support)

  • Division of real estate property

  • Division of personal property 

  • Division of debts

  • Division of insurance policies and premiums

  • Division of money damages from personal injury, pensions, retirement funds, etc.  

  • Child custody

  • Child support 

  • Child visitation  

This is not a comprehensive list, but you can see just how complicated it could all turn out to be. That’s where AG Law comes in to guide you through everything. If you and your spouse are in disagreement on just one item then you may be forced to go to trial. Let AG Law help you avoid that. 


Even though you and your spouse are able to talk and reason through everything together, we still recommend you seek legal counsel from the very beginning. Splitting and dividing assets and agreeing on child custody, etc. is only one step in a multi-step process. There are forms you have to fill out correctly and sign, supporting documentation that you need to collect and submit, and all this must be turned in at just the right time. There are fees you must pay, and you have to figure out what county you have to file in. There are a lot of places an untrained person could get tripped up. You could work through the whopping 129-page self-help guide to divorce that New Jersey provides, but hiring AG Law to help would be easier. AG Law knows the uncontested divorce process and can assist you every step of the way. We’ll answer your questions, guide you through all necessary paperwork, file the paperwork at the appropriate time, and get you through the process as quickly and efficiently as possible.
