New Jersey Divorce Cases and NJ PostJudgment Motions and New Jersey Family Court Trial Costs. There are times where the parties cannot agree to terms of their divorce or a plenary hearing is ordered as to postjudgment motions for a case. Parties should be well aware that there are many costs associated with any trial, preparation and copying of exhibits, generally four copies are required, review of the entire file from its beginning, drafting of a trial brief and memorandum of law, costs associated with experts and their attendance, and costs of the attorney and their paralegal for preparing the file and preparing witnesses for testimony at trial, then there is the attendance at trial and of course the travel to and from the courtroom. Very often, parties must wait for the case to be called by the Judge and the parties must pay for the attorneys to wait in the court until their case is called as well. Finally, often a trial is spread out of months in NJ Family Court and so the attorney must constantly be preparing for the trial every time they are due in court. All of these costs can easily and quickly add up to thousands of dollars and often tens of thousands of dollars and parties have to be prepared to spend these kind of monies if they are in fact going to trial.
