Changes To New Jersey Divorce Laws
In the last several years, New Jersey has changed from the 18-month waiting period in no-fault divorce to the notion of irreconcilable differences, which allows the lawsuit to be filed within six months. The vast majority of the divorces filed through our office utilize irreconcilable differences as a category for divorce. Schedule a consultation with a lawyer in our office to learn more about your options.
Throughout our long experience, we have learned how to approach the emotionally traumatic experiences that our clients are suffering through. We strive to make our clients as comfortable as possible as we remove as much stress and worry from their shoulders as we can. We also understand that there will be moments throughout the case where the situation demands that we act aggressively on behalf of our clients. We are comfortable filling these roles, and our clients trust us to do everything in our power to help them.
In New Jersey, juvenile matters are handled through family court rather than superior court. The goal of family court is to protect your minor child, but based on the severity of the charge, the prosecutor might recommend that the case be tried in superior court. It is important in these situations to involve your attorney immediately so we can fight to protect the rights and the future of your child.
