Do you live in Mercer County, NJ? Have you been thinking of getting a divorce?

At The Durst Firm we never tell a potential client if or when they should file for divorce. That is a deeply personal decision and one that should not be entered into lightly. Our role is to review the situation and advise as to various courses of action based on our extensive experience and knowledge

That being, if you are a Mercer County resident and are considering filing for divorce, the time to act may be NOW! As a result of recent changes enacted to address the extensive backlog in the Mercer County Family Court, AFTER APRIL 15, 2024 ALLL NEW DIVORCE FILINGS WILL BE RANDOMLY ASSIGNED TO THE FOLLOWING COUNTIES: (1) ATLANTIC/CAPE MAY (2) BURLINGTON, OR (3) MIDDLESEX. While appreciate any efforts to move cases along, we also appreciate that this move will place an incredible burden on our clients in terms of travel to the various locations and the increased costs associated with our travel to certain court appearances. We received news of this development on very short notice and are continually thinking of ways to mitigate the effects on new clients.

The best way to avoid having to incur the additional time and expense is to have your Complaint for Divorce filed in Mercer County before April 15, 2024.
