New Jersey Divorce and the Intensive Settlement Conference
If parties have not settled their case after filing their complaint for divorce, propounding discovery requests and serving discovery responses, attending
Early Settlement Panel and Economic Mediation, then they generally must attend an Intensive Settlement Conference prior to trial. At the ISC, the parties may be made to spend all day in the Court while their attorneys attempt to make a final stab at settling their matter.
The Judge assigned to the case will facilitate this intensive attempt to settle the case, and, often, the Judge will make suggestions as to creative solutions for what may seem to be an intractable problem that the NJ divorce lawyers are facing. A third legal mind added to the mix often loosens what seems to be an impossible roadblock.
Clients often become more malleable and receptive to ideas from the Court as to how to settle the case, considering the alternative, which is likely a lengthy and costly trial. If you have questions about any of the processes of a divorce, call us at Green & Associates.
