Fortunately, child support can help you to cover the costs associated with rearing your children. Here is a glimpse at how these court-ordered payments work in the state of New Jersey.

Divorce in New Jersey: The Basics of the CIS

Divorce is a creature of state law. As such, the exact process used to navigate a divorce will vary in each state. In New Jersey, those who go through a divorce generally need to complete a Case Information Statement (CIS). The court will use this form to help guide the asset division determination portion of the proceeding.

As noted in a recent publication by the National Law Review, the CIS is an important part of divorce in New Jersey. Not only does the court use this document to guide property division, but it can serve as a tool in litigation.

After years of being the victim of a violent relationship, you are starting to come to terms with the fact that you need to end your relationship if you are to stay safe and have the chance at regaining your independency. In order to start working towards this new path of freedom, you must first leave your partner in New Jersey and begin living on your own again. 

This step in your journey may undoubtedly be the most difficult as you strategically create a plan that will enable you to get out of the control of your abuser without putting yourself further into harm's way. According to helpguide.org, some of the things that you can do to prepare include the following:

  • Think about and be familiar with all of the points of exit in your home. 
  • Decide on a code word that will notify others of when you are in danger so they can call for help. Share this information with trusted friends, family or even your children. 
  • Be aware of the signs that your abuser is about to snap. 
  • Keep a small bag with essentials packed and ready to go so when an opportunity presents itself, you are not wasting precious moments packing things you need. 
  • Memorize the phone numbers and addresses of people who you can go to in an emergency. 
  • If you contact resources such as a shelter, use a friend's phone or a pay phone to eliminate the risk of your abuser finding out who you have been speaking to.
