Getting Through the Divorce Process Efficiently

While New Jersey has done away with outdated rules requiring people to establish “fault” for the breakdown of a marriage, formally dissolving a marriage in legal terms can still be far from a simple process. For one thing, you will have to meet residency requirements and other time-based qualifications before you have standing to file for divorce. In addition, there is also a great deal of paperwork involved that must be submitted to and/or served on numerous different people.

Courts in New Jersey will not finalize a divorce until both spouses agree on how to handle various marital issues. These issues often include financial support obligations, splitting custody of children produced by the marriage, and dividing marital property between both partners. While some of these issues are things you can settle with your spouse entirely on your own, others—particularly the ones having to do with children—have to have involvement from the court. Support from a seasoned Piscataway family attorney can be key to handling both types of issues effectively and efficiently.
