Contested Divorce

A contested divorce is when spouses cannot agree to one or more terms of the divorce. In an uncontested divorce, spouses must negotiate to reach settlements on each disputed (contested) issue such as property division, child custody and spousal support/maintenance. If the spouses cannot agree on the contested issues and reach a settlement, the matter must be brought to court and the issues are decided by a judge.

Janet was very helpful. Listened to everything I had to say, worked with me and was just made it easy and a good experience. And her staff is very polite and welcoming. I will definitely use her in the future and recommend her to anybody.

Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce is when both spouses are in agreement over the terms of the divorce and all of the issues involved. Although uncontested divorces are simpler and more straightforward than contested divorces, it is still vital to follow the legal requirements with care and attention to detail.

Gray Divorce

The divorce rate of couples over the age of 50 have doubled over the past 20 years in the United States. Gray divorces refer to these couples that are divorcing after twenty plus years of marriage. There are often specific issues that couples going through a gray divorce face, such as retirement money that was meant to support one household must now be divided to support two households. At The Law Office of Janet J. Goldman, we understand these unique considerations and are prepared to guide you through this transition and help you move forward with your lives to the next chapter.
