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. We can help keep your uncontested divorce stay on track and resolve successfully.
In the case of a contested divorce, Candy Ley Velazquez is a tenacious, aggressive advocate for her client’s interests regarding any items in dispute.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
A prenuptial or premarital agreement is a contract entered into by people who are contemplating marriage that becomes effective upon marriage. A prenuptial agreement can help both prospective spouses start their life together with a clear view of the assets and debts each one is bringing into the marriage, as well as their understanding of how issues such as the division of property or payment of alimony should play out in the event the marriage doesn’t last. The prenup can protect one spouse’s vital business interests from being broken up in a divorce, or ensure that a non-working spouse is provided with support for as long as reasonably needed. The prenup can dictate the terms of a will or an insurance policy, as well.
These agreements are valuable for couples coming from unequal financial backgrounds or for couples who have children from a prior relationship. In truth, any couple can benefit from a prenuptial agreement. New Jersey family law attorney Candy Ley Velazquez can negotiate and draft a valid and enforceable prenuptial on your behalf, or review an agreement drawn up by another lawyer to make sure it is fair to you. Velazquez Law, LLC, can assist in postnuptial agreements as well, which play a similar role but are entered into after the couple is already married.
