Uncontested Divorces

Domestic Relations is an area of law that this firm maintains in that ‘marriage’ is essentially a ‘contract’.  In an area where emotions can often be the foundation of decisions, Elniski Law, P.C. can artfully and tastefully craft agreements to serve our clients’ best interests coupled with the marital interests.  Pre-nup and Post-nup agreements, although sensitive in the marital setting, are becoming essential elements to our divorce-laden society and may serve to prevent divorce wars.  Accordingly, when all potential marital issues are fostered and settled in advance of any dispute and put in writing decisively, a divorce may be a friendly, uncontested, mutually-beneficial parting.

While no divorce is truly “uncontested” in the sense that there are no disagreements when emotions are high severing a marriage, these disputes do not always have to be resolved in a court.  Specifically, that is the underlying meaning of an uncontested divorce - the spouses decide on the terms of the divorce without litigious court intervention.  Both spouses either agree at the end of a marriage or rest their divorce terms on contractual arrangements previously designed to amicably end the marriage.  Either way, there is a mutually satisfying agreement regarding the final divorce settlement.

In an uncontested divorce the couple is able to or has already come to an agreement on issues such as property division, child support, spousal support and any other financial issues.  Uncontested divorces move quickly through the judicial system and are less expensive than contested divorces.  They also have the tendency to reduce hostility, allowing both parties to resume their lives more quickly.
