The Divorce Process

Divorce Lawyer Serving Monmouth County

If you are considering divorce, then it will be beneficial for you to understand what is entailed in the divorce process. First there is the legally recognized separation period. The couple must live, sleep and reside in separate locations at all times, separate bedrooms in the same house does not count. If the couple comes together at any point during this period then the clock could be reset. If you have already met the separation requirements then you may file a petition for divorce in your current state of residence.

Once you have filed your complaint, then your spouse must be notified or served. Once this process has begun there is generally a temporary hearing or motion to establish temporary child custody and support while these issues are being decided in the divorce case. Lastly there must be an agreement as to the issues of child support, asset division and many others. This can be done through mediation or litigation. If you and your spouse are unable to resolve these issues through mediation then the divorce may go to trial where a judge will hear both parties and decide these matters for you.
