Do you understand the family law divorce process?

Chances are that most people do not give the divorce process much thought until they realize that their marriage is over. Trying to figure out the process while going through an incredibly emotional period may be overwhelming. By better understanding the family law process in New Jersey, couples can usually reach an agreeable divorce settlement. 

Most people know what to do to start the divorce process -- file the paperwork. But it is a little more involved than simply submitting a request to end a marriage. Although some couples do choose to submit a request simultaneously, more often than not it is usually one person who files for divorce on his or her own. At that point the other party is notified of the filing and given the opportunity to respond.

If a couple can easily handle financial and child custody matters during divorce, then they may not need to worry about temporary orders. For most people though, implementing temporary orders that establish custody, visitation schedules, alimony, child support and more can help couples stay calm and organized until their divorce is finalized. Formal orders will usually be put into place at that time. 

A formal hearing in front of a judge can help couples who are struggling to reach some type of agreement on their own. This process can take time, though, and may cost more in the long run. For those who can, mediation with an impartial third-party can be a smart alternative. 

Getting divorced can be a scary and emotional time for most people. However, understanding something can often help alleviate some of the associated fears. By familiarizing themselves with the process ahead and keeping an eye on important financial matters, New Jersey couples can usually reach the best possible conclusion to their divorce.
