Divorce Settlement Lawyer in New Jersey
If possible, it is always better to settle your differences amicably than it is to fight it out in court. Litigation can be expensive, stressful and time-consuming. Recognizing this, all New Jersey Courts mandate that following discovery, all cases must be presented by the attorneys to an Early Settlement Panel made up of experienced court-appointed professionals. The Panel will recommend a resolution of the case to both parties.
If either party declines the Panel’s recommendations, in a last effort to facilitate a settlement before trial, the Court will then obligate the parties to attend economic mediation.
If all settlements attempts fail, there is little choice but to have a trial, where the judge assigned to the case hears all evidence and decides all remaining disputes.
