East Brunswick Uncontested Divorce Lawyer

Call Our Freehold Uncontested Divorce Attorney at (866) 760-6430

There are some married couples that when they decide to divorce, they are amicable, and generally agree on the crucial issues that must be resolved, including property division and child custody and visitation.

In some cases, there are few assets to divide, as the marriage was short term, or there may have been no children of the marriage, so there is no need for custody and visitation arrangements. When this is the case, the process of getting divorced is faster. Most people seeking an uncontested divorce have the process managed by an East Brunswick uncontested divorce lawyer.

The Law Offices of Ryan E. Gilbert, LLC can help you through this time. Contact us at (866) 760-6430!

Reaching an Agreement & Avoiding Litigation

If the two parties in the divorce have engaged in mediation or a collaborative divorce, or the two attorneys have negotiated a reasonable resolution that both agree to, there is no need for a trial. As New Jersey law allows for a no-fault divorce, it is not necessary to have grounds beyond the fact that your marriage is irretrievably broken, with no reasonable prospect of reconciliation. There are other grounds that are still valid, including those related to one party suffering from a mental illness, narcotic or alcohol addiction, extreme cruelty, desertion, adultery, incarceration and some others.

Uncontested Divorce Process

An uncontested divorce can be broken up into three main phases:

  • Working together to create terms of the divorce agreement
  • Both parties accepting these terms
  • Filing agreement with court for approval

Once you have agreed to the terms of the divorce agreement, it is a matter of filing this agreement with the court for approval. The agreement will be reviewed by the court for approval. The submission must include a parenting plan that makes sense, and reflects the best interests of the children.

The division of the marital estate must also be clearly stated so that there is no question about "who gets what." The Property Settlement Agreement (PSA) will then be incorporated into the final judgment. The process of a contested divorce can be fast and simple, when the two parties agree, or could take some time as each party negotiates the terms

The "defendant" in the divorce has 35 days to file a counterclaim. In New Jersey, a process called "Early Settlement Panels" is available to issue legal positions regarding child support, custody and property division. You are not legally obligated to participate, but if your spouse has used this service, based upon the financial condition of each party, you may be asked to pay the cost of this service.

    "My case had a successful outcome."
    Ryan was compassionate, intelligent, efficient and thorough; he gave good advice, represented me in court, and was successful in winning a reduction in my property taxes. I wholeheartedly recommend him. I know he handles other types of cases as well.
    - Former Client
    "Great job protecting my future"
    Ryan was a trusted adviser throughout the course of my legal issues. I was unfamiliar with legal proceedings and Ryan was able to explain to me my legal situation, and risks associated with various defenses and decisions I had to make. He took the time to explain all the scenarios to my satisfaction which gave me piece of mind and comfort. Ryan was also very responsive through various forms of communications (phone, email, text) which made keeping in contact convenient throughout the process. Ryan showed up on time (early in fact) to various appointments and appeared to handle relationship building effectively with opposing attorneys and the prosecutor. At the end of the day, I was very satisfied with the work done by Ryan as the outcome of my legal matter was better than I had expected and kept my reputation in tact, which undoubtedly will help me pursue my future career/professional ambitions.

    "Professionalism at its best"
    Mr. Gilbert has made my case easy and clear to understand without all the legal jargon. He took time to help me clearly understand my case and kept me updated with all occurrences. Also, the case had been postponed and he waited alongside and had a friendly chat at the nearby Starbucks and besides giving me a great case result, he made me feel as if I had someone by my side. Patient, honest, and soft spoken, Ryan is not someone else whom just told me what to do and I just say yes too, like previous attorneys I had. I will always suggest and use Ryan Gilbert as my attorney.
    - Former Client
    "Attentive, fast responding, professional, expert"
    Attentive, fast responding, professional and expert is how I would describe the attention and service that I received from Mr. Gilbert. He solved my matter quickly and explained in very clear terms each step and set expectation for action on all sides. I was very pleased with how my matter was resolved and would recommend Mr. Gilbert to those requiring legal services. If needed I would absolutely seek Mr. Gilbert's council again.
    - Former Client
    "An invaluable asset to anyone"
    Mr. Gilbert is an excellent attorney. His knowledge and experience make him an invaluable asset to anyone looking for an attorney.
    - Former Client
    "Ryan could not have been more helpful"
    I found myself in quite a situation and Ryan could not have been more helpful in my time of need. Ryan worked tirelessly and did whatever he could to secure for me the best possible outcome. Even when I first called, I never could have imagined having my case resolve as positively as it did. Thank you so much Ryan!
