Divorce in New Jersey: A self-help guide



Due to the coronavirus, civil and family court proceedings scheduled after Wednesday, March 18 will be conducted by video or phone and no new jury trials will be scheduled. Do not go to the courthouse without calling for the most up-to-date instructions. Also, due to limited staffing during this time, LSNJ’s ability to respond to technical questions regarding the divorce manual forms may be very limited. We appreciate your patience during this time.

Legal Services of New Jersey makes available a variety of publications and brochures to give people the information they need to help themselves if they cannot afford a lawyer. We also publish a newsletter, Looking Out for Your Legal Rights ®, with 10 issues a year covering a wealth of information about legal rights in all areas of civil law. You can find our publications on our Publications page.

PLEASE NOTE: Divorce in New Jersey: A Self-Help Guide is accurate as of the date it was last revised—January 2019.
