Even uncontested divorce can be complicated

Once a New Jersey couple has decided to end their marriage, it is normal for both spouses to want the process over as soon as possible. Some are so desperate to end the marriage that they are quite prepared to let the other spouse take all -- especially if there are no children. However, such impulsive decisions can bring regret later. An uncontested divorce filing is the quickest way to get a divorce and still get a fair share of the property.

A change in marital status can have an adverse impact on the financial stability of one or both spouses.
