What happens after a complaint for divorce is filed?

New Jersey residents who file for divorce may be interested in a speedy resolution to the matter so that they can move on with their lives. Several factors may affect the timing as a case is scheduled for court activity. If it is uncontested, the case could be heard as soon as three months from the filing date. However, delays may be expected if the court is extremely busy. As a date is selected for the hearing, the parties will be notified to appear.

New Jersey child support

New Jersey parents who were never married as well as those who have gotten divorced may sometimes find themselves in situations in which one parent is either failing to pay court-ordered child support or needs help in obtaining an initial child support order.

Circumstances define child support rulings in 2 New Jersey cases

In what would seem to be two sides of the same coin, two New Jersey courts have recently taken different stances on a parent’s obligation to pay for a child’s tuition. A Morris County superior court ruled that a couple did not have to pay for their daughter’s tuition for private high school and college.
