Camden County Uncontested Divorce
A Camden County uncontested divorce (sometimes called "No-Contest Divorce" or "No-Fault Divorce") is the fastest, cheapest and least stressful way to divorce. Few divorce cases, including uncontested divorces, are completely free from disagreement. However, in an uncontested divorce, disagreements are informally worked out before filing the actual divorce with the Court. This simplifies the divorce proceedings, saves time and lowers your costs. It also keeps much of your personal information private.
Whether you have a simple divorce or one a complicated one, the uncontested divorce process can work for you. But, the two of you must agree to work out the details of a settlement agreement.
We strive to make every Camden County uncontested divorce affordable and dignified.

Is an Uncontested Camden County Divorce Right for Me?
For a divorce to be uncontested, you and your spouse must agree on all of the basic issues before the actual divorce filing. Basically, this means that both of you sign a marital Settlement Agreement. We prepare this critical document for you. But first, we thoroughly discuss all aspects of your divorce case with you. Of course, we provide advice to you on the issues in that process. Here are the most common issues.
- Marital assets and property division (also called equitable division or property).
- Debt allocation.
- Child custody and visitation (including a detailed Parenting Plan).
- Spousal support/Alimony (when appropriate) and child support.
If you both can agree on these issues, you can successfully complete your uncontested Camden County divorce. The judge will not need to decide the details for you. You and your spouse will work out all issues and the judge will simply approve the paperwork. Of course, the details must be legal and proper. Part of what we do is to make sure that the paperwork is correct. That way, the judge does not have to intervene and just approves your divorce agreement.

Contested or Uncontested: You Decide
Every person/couple having marital difficulties should seek the advice of a marriage counseling professional. But, if divorce is inevitable, every couple should use all means possible to work out acceptable terms on all issues. This can be done independently, or through mediation (or even arbitration). Uncontested divorce saves time, money, and stress, and frees you from a lengthy and expensive court battle.
