The Rules of Court in New Jersey and the procedures for certain filings such as postjudgment motions have changed in their application recently by the courts. In the past, when filing a postjudgment motion with the court after another attorney or a pro se litigant had not represented themselves for more than 45 days, usually, you could just file a motion on behalf of the client. Lately, the Courts are requesting that a Notice of Appearance be filed by the attorney and a fifty dollar court filing fee be paid as well. The Courts have recently moved to raise their fees and enforce rules not entirely enforced before to it seems accrue more in fees for the court system. For instance, that Notice of Appearance will cost you $50 dollars, the filing free for a complaint is now up to $300 without children and if you have to file an answer you now have to pay an additional $175, in the past, there was no additional fee for the answer as it was thought to be included in the initial complaint filing fee for divorce.
