Speeding Up the Process
One way to expedite the divorce process in New Jersey might be to allow your attorney to set up a conference between you, your attorney, your spouse, and his or her attorney. In this conference, the attorneys will attempt to guide you to settle disputed issues before going to court. If an agreement can be made, a settlement agreement will be prepared and will become part of the judgment of divorce.
During the course of the case you will also be referred to an Early Settlement Panel, where the spouses and their attorneys will meet with a panel of two experienced matrimonial attorneys who will help guide you in resolving all outstanding financial and support issues in your case. Support guidelines set in the state of New Jersey will usually be used to determine the amount of child support to be paid, and this agreement will become part of your judgment of divorce. If no agreement can be reached, your case will be placed on the calendar for Intensive Settlement Conference. If it is not settled thereafter it will be heard by a judge at trial.
