NJ Divorce on the Papers

Certain counties in New Jersey will now allow a divorce to go through without requiring appearance in court. This option is available if there are no issues raised other than the divorce. For example, there are no custody, support, or equitable distribution issues. Alternatively, if the parties reach an agreement on all outstanding issues, the agreement can be incorporated with the request for the divorce and the appearance requirement can still be waived. A final judgment of divorce will need to be prepared. The judgment should include whether an agreement is being included. The judgment should also cover the minimum requirements for divorce such as appropriate jurisdiction based on residency. Further, if wife intends to retake her maiden name, that should be included in the proposed final judgment.

In addition to preparing the judgment of divorce, both parties should submit supporting certifications. The certifications should go into further detail about the facts establishing the divorce action. The certification should set forth the marriage date of the parties and the period of residency. The cause of action should be stated (e.g. irreconcilable differences, separation, etc.). The certification should state if there are any children between the parties and if so, their names and date of birth. Again, if an agreement has been reached regarding ancillary issues, the agreement should also be referenced in the certification. Finally, the parties should indicate they are waiving their right to trial in favor of having the divorce granted without personal appearance.
