Earlier this month the New Jersey Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee passed a collaborative divorce bill. The bill is now headed for the full Senate. If passed, the new law will create another option for couples going through divorce, which will allow for a couple to work together to resolve their divorce rather than have to go to court. The process requires that the couple actually collaborates with each other, and the process would end if a temporary restraining order is involved or either party withholds relevant information.
