Contested Divorce Vs. Uncontested Divorce In New Jersey

Even when you feel you are prepared for a divorce, it can be a stressful time. You may have questions about how it will affect your life, your finances and, most importantly, your relationship with your children.

At the Law Office of Sarina Gianna, LLC, I have successfully represented many individuals and families going through this difficult time. As soon as you retain me as your divorce lawyer, I go to work protecting your interests.

In New Jersey, divorcing spouses may seek an uncontested divorce where they agree upon matters of property division, child support and child custody outside of court. A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on the terms of the divorce. Both sides then argue their positions before a judge.

When you allow a judge to decide what happens in a divorce, you are giving a great deal of discretion to someone who may not fully understand your needs and your perspective. This may be appropriate in some cases but it gives you less certainty about the potential outcome.

Resolving a divorce with an out-of-court settlement allows us to work with your spouse and his or her attorney to reach a reasonable compromise. This gives you more control over the outcome and costs much less than taking the matter to trial. It may also be easier on your children, who may already be struggling with the separation.

When settling a case amicably is simply not an option, I am prepared to take your case to court, presenting your story to the judge and making a compelling argument in your best interests.
