What are the steps to a divorce in Dover NJ?
To start a divorce process, you must first contact an attorney. In our office, we bring you in for an initial consultation of about an hour and a half with one of our attorneys. We spend time talking about all the issues in your divorce and getting to know about your and your personal and unique situation and concerns.
For that initial meeting we ask that you bring any documents we can potentially look at to help you such as financial information any prenuptial agreement or other documents that may be important in your divorce process. This may include anything that could really help the attorney ascertain what the major issues are in your divorce.
Once we do that we will talk about a plan of how we want the case to progress. That plan is based on what your goals are for the resolution of the divorce. These may include child custody, spousal support, dividing homes and property, dividing complex assets and other important issues that will need to be decided whether your divorce is high net worth or middle class.
It is important to know that in order to initiate a divorce in the State of New Jersey the first filing you must make, is a complaint for divorce. Which is filed in the county which you reside. It is a document you submit to the court with the reasons you are seeking a divorce, and the relief you are asking for the court to grant you ultimately in your divorce.
