Is My NJ Mediation Legally Binding?

Jul 3, 2018

When filing for a divorce or any post-divorce modification such as alimony modifications or child custody and visitation modifications, the plaintiff must file the petition in the county court where either the defendant or the plaintiff resides, is employed, or has a place of business.

The county court where a family law proceeding is heard is called the venue, and while laws do not differ county to county, divorce petitions and post-divorce proceedings must be filed in the correct venue or the case may be dismissed entirely.

At The Law Office of Townsend, Tomaio & Newmark, our experienced family law attorneys can help you determine which court is the proper venue for any divorce or post-divorce matter, and ensure your legal, financial, and parental interests are protected throughout any family law proceeding.
