Jul 11 NJ Civil and Divorce Trials to Resume in Three Counties
On Wednesday, July 5, 2023, Chief Justice Stuart Rabner announced three (3) New Jersey counties will resume civil and divorce trials that were suspended earlier this year due to Judge shortages. These include: Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem counties. The trial halt will remain in place for Hunterdon, Somerset, and Warren counties. Passaic County will stop holding such trials starting July 31, 2023.
However, it still remains a great time to consider alternative dispute resolutions in divorce cases, including (1) mediation, (2) collaborative law, and (3) arbitration.
Mediation utilizes an impartial third party to work with the divorcing couple.
Collaborative Law is when each party is represented by a separate attorney, and they commit to reaching a settlement without resorting to any form of litigation or court adjudication.
Arbitration is a structured process where an arbitrator makes the final decision, similar to a Judge in Court.
