Default Divorce in New Jersey - When Their Isn't a Spouse to Sign - Our NJ Divorce Lawyer and NJ Divorce Attorney Can Help You.  Many people are under the impression that you cannot get divorced unless the other party signs something permitting it, that just isn't so.  A default divorce in New Jersey may be obtained without the other party doing anything.  In that process, a divorce complaint is filed and then served on the other party by a process server, the other party doesn't sign for service.  After that, they have 35 days to answer the complaint.  If they do not do so, you can request a default hearing with the Court.  If there are no assets, debts or liabilities to distribute and no children, you do not need to have a Matrimonial Agreement signed, nor do you need to serve the other party with a Notice of Proposed Judgment of Divorce and your divorce will be put through at the NJ default hearing.

Is There A Simple NJ Divorce or Easy New Jersey Divorce.  In the State of New Jersey, parties may have relatively simple or easy divorces through the process of a default divorce or limited uncontested divorce.  In a default divorce, one party files for divorce and the other party does not answer and goes into default.  The parties may agree upon the terms of a divorce through a property settlement agreement or a Notice of Proposed Judgment, where terms of child custody, child support, alimony and equitable distribution of property, including retirement accounts such as 401ks, IRAs or pensions, are dealt with.  If the other party either signs off on the property settlement agreement or does not object to the Notice of Proposed Judgment, which is served upon them at least twenty days prior to a default hearing, then the divorce goes through with the terms of the PSA or the Notice of Proposed Judgment.
