Admitted to the New Jersey Bar in 2006 and as a member of the New Jersey State Bar Family Law Section, Attorney Jamie N. Berger, Esq has extensive experience in all aspects of litigation in family and appellate court proceedings. In the following video, Mrs. Berger explores the uncontested hearing and uncontested proceedings in New Jersey.

What is an Uncontested Hearing?

An uncontested hearing is when you go into court with your attorney and you put through the terms of the marital settlement agreement and the court is not taking testimony as to any of the resolutions that you and your spouse have come to. The court is simply making the determination that you have entered into the agreement voluntarily and you believe that the agreement is reasonable, and fair given the circumstances.

What does the uncontested proceeding mean in the state of New Jersey?

An uncontested proceeding in New Jersey means that the issues have not been resolved they are being litigated. It means that you have not come to a resolution, you have not been able to settle your case. It does not mean that you won’t be able to ultimately, but you are preceding with litigation and in order to do so, we have to proceed with discovery and there are certain court mandated settlement processes that the court would require us to do in order to try to resolve your case. Ultimately, if those are unsuccessful then your matter would go to trial, we will appear before a judge in the county where you are venued and we will present our case to that judge and allow that judge to make decisions.
