What are the most common type of divorce cases?

No two divorces are the same and the reasons for divorce varies for each couple. Here’s a breakdown of the most common divorce types, Ercolano Law can represent you with.

• No-Fault Divorce:

NJ is a no-fault divorce state. This means that no one must show evidence that the other spouse did something wrong to warrant the divorce. “Irreconcilable Differences” is a sufficient reason for filing.

• Contested Divorce:

In a contested divorce, there exists disagreement that cannot be resolved or mediated between spouses. Typically these types of divorces get settled with a trial. Ercolano Law will prepare for your divorce trial, defending your position and interests throughout the litigation.

• Uncontested Divorce:

In an uncontested divorce, both spouses mutually agree on every aspect of their marriage’s dissolution. Important issues like finances, division of property, child custody, and child visitation are resolved. Our experienced legal team would review the details of your agreement and the final contract to ensure your rights are protected through the finalization of the petition.

• Collaborative Divorce:

Collaborative Divorce cases bring forth a cooperative and collaborative process between both parties in an effort to resolve differences and disputes in an amicable, non-combative manner.  Once the details are ironed out, Ercolano Law will draft the formal agreement that finalizes the process.

• Limited Divorce:

This is a legal separation that gives the couple time to arrange their finances, property division, child custody and child support issues. During a limited divorce process, the couples cannot live together but they remain married.

• Simplified Divorce / Summary Dissolution:

With Dissolution, it means that it most cases, the following points have been worked out: Child Support, Division of Property(ies), Parental Rights, Payment of Attorney(s), Payments of Debt(s), Residential Parent(s), Spousal Support, Visitation(s). When couples agree to a summary dissolution, it will be up to each of them to represent themselves in court. Ercolano Law can review the terms of agreement and help you understand what you are entitled to before you sign the paperwork required by the courts.
