New Jersey Divorce Lawyer Discusses the Steps of the Divorce Process

I am often asked as a New Jersey Divorce Lawyer, what the steps are in the divorce process.

  • The first step is called case management.  You and your attorney or your attorney by consent can work on a schedule and then have it submitted to the judge.
  • Next is the discovery phase which reviews all of your and your spouse’s finances.  This includes assets and debts.
  • You will be required to attend an early settlement panel where your attorney and the other will provide a reasonable settlement for your review.
  • If you are unsuccessful in settling in early settlement, you will be required to attend economic mediation.
