NJ Divorce and a Passive-Aggressive Spouse - How To Work Around Them Making It Harder Than It Has To Be.  If you have a spouse who doesn't really want the divorce or they are angry at you for some perceived reason, they may try to make your divorce in New Jersey more difficult, but there are ways to recognize that they are a passive aggressive future divorced spouse and use the process of divorce to your advantage in the New Jersey Family Courts.  First, if you are looking to move your complaint for divorce along and don't want to be delayed, expect that they will try to slow things down and move expeditiously in filing your complaint for divorce, putting together a property settlement agreement with your proposed terms and serving your complaint on them with your proposed terms of settlement of things like alimony, child custody, child support, equitable distribution of property.  Call them out essentially and immediately on what they say they are willing to settle for and what they are not.  You limit where they work to slow things down, and you can immediately attack those things at issue rather than let them create a slow down in settling your case and putting through the uncontested divorce.  File other documents quickly as well, only if necessary, such as discovery requests and move for quick dates on Early Settlement Panel and Economic mediation.  It will cost them too to move forward and when they see you are serious and will not allow them to stifle the process, they may be more quick to ultimately settle, seeing that their tactics are only quickening your resolve to go forward and get the divorce finalized.  If you are seeking to go forward with your divorce now, and what an experienced New Jersey divorce attorney that knows the procedural system, call us now at our East Brunswick office or Fort Lee office at 732-390-0480 or 201-242-1119 for a free consultation.  Ask us about our flat fees for an uncontested divorce.  We have night appointments as well.  Green & Associates, your NJ divorce lawyer and NJ divorce attorney with the experience you can count on!
