Philadelphia, PA asked in Divorce for New Jersey

Q: I have been battling a 4.5 year divorce. How do I get out of this? Judge is biased because ex is ill. No access 401k o

I filed a motion in January to finalize the divorce since I don't have access to my 401K. I also don't have access to my children's college funds (they are in college and we need the money). Still no response. During the last ruling, I filed with the appellate court because the judge ruled against federal law.

A: I can simply suggest that you meet with one of the lawyers in our office or meet with another certified divorce and family law trial lawyer by the NJ Supreme Court to review your matter, the rulings by the judge handling your case and the alternatives available to you at this stage.

A: Thank you for your question. It’s difficult to give a complete response without looking at the Orders entered in the case. A contested divorce taking over 4 years is not unusual especially if you live in a highly populated county such as Essex or Hudson. Now with COVID the time for completion will exceed 5 years for sure. I can understand your frustration but effective motion practice would resolve these issues for certain. I suggest you get yourself into a top notch law firm.
