I. Conclusion and Reminder


The beginning of this manual contains several warnings about getting a divorce on your own. These same warnings apply to complicated issues that arise after the final judgment of divorce. This manual is not meant as a substitute for legal assistance and representation. If you have any further questions concerning any aspect of your divorce, please contact the lawyer referral service of your county bar association. If you are a low-income New Jersey resident, you may be eligible for legal help from a Legal Services office in your area. You may also be eligible for free legal advice from LSNJ-LAW™, Legal Services of New Jersey’s statewide, toll-free legal hotline. The hotline telephone number is 1-888-LSNJ-LAW (1-888-576-5529). Hotline hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Online intake is also available. If you are income-eligible, a Legal Services attorney can give you more information and advice over the telephone. If you are not eligible for Legal Services, the hotline will refer you to other possible resources
