Divorce can be contested or uncontested. An uncontested divorce is one where both parties agree on how to handle all the issues in their divorce, so nothing needs to be litigated in court. As a Panelist on the Essex County Matrimonial Early Settlement Panel, Candy Ley Velazquez is experienced in helping divorcing couples negotiate and mediate their divorce for a positive result that meets everyone’s needs fairly and without the emotional costs a contested divorce can entail.
