Question:

Will I have to go to court for my divorce?

Answer:

If you’re here and considering a divorce in New Jersey, you might be wondering if you actually have to go before a judge to get divorced. Generally speaking, we try to avoid that at all costs. We believe it is better for you to make the decision for your own divorce than some stranger in the black robe. However, there are times that you might have to go before the judge, especially if you don’t agree or the matter is hotly contested.Divorce CourtIf you cannot come to a resolution on your matter, a judge will be required to do that. However, under the vast majority of circumstances, we don’t need to do that. The only time you’ll go before the court is the day that you’re actually going to get your divorce and then only to assure the judge that you understand the process.
