The Final Hearing of Divorce is where the parties are actually divorced by the Judge in Court. Generally, there is a two or three page Judgment of Divorce which states that the parties have met the elements of the cause of action for divorce, whether it be irreconcilable differences or extreme cruelty or adultery, and that jurisdiction of the court is proper as a party has lived in the State of New Jersey at least one year, and therefore the Court will dissolve the marriage. If a Property Settlement Agreement has been signed by the parties, then that is incorporated into the Final Judgment of Divorce, and all its terms are enforceable. If there is no agreement, the Judgment of Divorce is all that is necessary if there are no issues of support, child support, or equitable distribution of assets or debts.
