Settling a New Jersey Divorce Case When It Appears Hopeless Due to Child Custody Issues. Very often, specific issues in a NJ divorce matter may keep the parties from settling, sometimes, if you separate out that particular issue and focus on all the other issues, you can bring yourself closer to settlement. An example, a NJ divorce that is bogged down because of custody and parenting time issues may be easier settled by an New Jersey divorce lawyer if the parties first focus on all of the economic issues and get those out of the way. After a NJ divorce attorney settles issues of alimony and equitable distribution, the parties can then look at custody and parenting time without being burdened with the other issues, this sometimes makes one or the other party more reasonable as regards the child custody and parenting time issues as they feel the other party has acted fairly with them to settle the other issues.
