In both of these books, and in the other books to come in the series, I want readers to feel like someone has reached out to take their hand and calmly walk them through step-by-step what to expect.

Every year in New Jersey, approximately 65,000 residents seek to end their marriages in divorce. To help demystify the often complex process of dissolving marital ties in the Garden State, Weinberger Law Group, an award-winning firm on the leading-edge of divorce and family law, announces the publication of A Guide to Uncontested Divorce in New Jersey and A Guide to Contested Divorce in New Jersey, the first two books in the firm’s new Family Law Jersey Style series of consumer-friendly legal guides.

Authored by New Jersey family law expert, Bari Z. Weinberger, Esq, a certified matrimonial law attorney and associate author of countless editions of the New Jersey Family Law Practice, the legal guide used by judges throughout the state, the books are invaluable and authoritative guides for anyone seeking basic legal knowledge about divorce in New Jersey. Weinberger made sure the books also include practical tips and supportive suggestions for how to navigate the process with confidence — and peace of mind.

“Our team has seen it all with divorce and we know that people entering the divorce process are often scared and worried about what’s to come. This is why I’ve taken great care to lay out a road map for the two basic types of divorces in New Jersey: uncontested and contested…uncontested divorce means a divorce settled out of court and a contested divorce is one that is argued before a judge. In both of these books, and in the other books to come in the series, I want readers to feel like someone has reached out to take their hand and calmly walk them through step-by-step what to expect,” Weinberger explains.

As for what readers can expect:

A Guide to Uncontested Divorce in New Jersey, the first book in the series, offers step-by-step guidance on how to negotiate and reach a settlement in divorce without going to court. In the guide, readers are provided with information about the steps involved in the uncontested divorce process and what paperwork and documents are needed, what happens during settlement talks, how to negotiate for what you really want, the role of an attorney in the uncontested process, and more.

“The uncontested divorce process is used by so many couples in New Jersey because it’s generally faster, less expensive, and more amicable than a contested divorce. I wanted to show couples exactly how the process works, and how to make it work for them,” Weinberger explains.

A Guide to Contested Divorce in New Jersey lays out strategies for couples going through a divorce involving a high degree of disagreement and conflict, including such hotly contested issues as child custody disputes, disagreements over who keeps the house, fighting over alimony, child support payments, business interests, and more. Information in the guide ranges from the first steps involved in the contested divorce process, including attending a case management conference and participating in the discovery process, to understanding what goes on in the courtroom during a divorce trial, and how to keep your cool.

“Contested divorces are even more stressful and time-consuming if you don’t have a plan. Your Guide to Contested Divorce in New Jersey has the information you need to help you reach a fair settlement and finally move on with your life,” Weinberger notes.

Both books are available on Amazon, in both paper and e-book (Kindle) format, or through the Weinberger Law Group website at
