Q. Interstate: California has Jurisdiction over divorce, filed first there. NJ just issued a dissolution. Where do I start?
A: A resident of New Jersey can file a divorce complaint in New Jersey. The only requirement is that the Plaintiff was a bona fide resident of the State of New Jersey for more than one year. Both New Jersey and California are signatories to the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) which discusses which state is in the best position to address child custody and parenting plans. Absent orders on the issue the State in which the children have resided in for the past six months is usually designated the home state, and best situated to make decisions concerning the best interests of the children. More than one State can have jurisdiction in a Divorce case. As a general rule in New Jersey, you cannot secure a divorce until all issues are addressed by agreement or trial. There are various Court rules that address contesting Court orders. The applicable rules depend on the date the order was entered, the procedural history that led to the order as well as the issues addressed. Addressing the merits of an New Jersey order should be pursued in New Jersey. Most all remedies have time limitations so you should retain a lawyer in New Jersey to address your case specific issues without delay.
