I hope this email finds you well. Thinking about divorce is hard on every part of you--your mind, your body, your heart especially. Stay focused on who is truly important in your life, the ones who love you unconditionally, and who make sense. You need some stability. Pray if you are into it, otherwise, just know that others care about you, and that you will get through it. You recently used the opt-in ezine form to subscribe to this mailing, and as a result, You are receiving the Free Divorce Papers I promised you. These fourteen pages are the Ocean County, NJ divorce forms. They may not be applicable in every county/state, so you still must do your own research about whether doing a pro se divorce is right for you.

I have worked hard over the past few months trying to compile a list of resources for anyone in any state who might be getting divorced, and am making major changes to the site to give you the best divorce advice possible! There are forums, ways to ask divorce attorneys questions, and lots of practical articles about processing your divorce paperwork and using an online divorce.

I sincerely hope this will help you as you process your divorce papers. Please let me know how else I can help! And, if you are finding the material on my divorce site helpful, please pay it forward and help someone else who is getting divorced. Use our forums to ask your questions or leave some encouragement for someone who needs it, or use my links to legal forms (this helps to pay to run the site).

Thanks so much for your support as I am also humbly in your service,

Sincerely, Jennifer

Docket No. FM- ___________________ _________________________________ Defendant, CIVIL ACTION SUMMONS ________________________________

From the State of New Jersey, to the Defendant Named Above:

The plaintiff, named above, has filed a lawsuit against you in the Superior Court of New Jersey. The complaint attached to this summons states the basis for this lawsuit. If you dispute this complaint, you or your attorney must file either (1) a written answer or motion, or (2) a general appearance in accordance with R. 5:4-3(a), and proof of service with the deputy clerk of the Superior Court in the country listed above within 35 days from the date you received this summons, not counting the date you received it. A ($135.oo w/o children or $160.00 w/children) filing fee payable to the Clerk of the Superior Court and a completed Case Information Statement (available from the Family Intake office) must accompany your answer or motion when it is filed. You must also send a copy of your answer or motion to plaintiff’s attorney whose name and address appear above, or to plaintiff, if no attorney is named above. A telephone call will not protect your rights: you must file and serve a written answer or motion (with fee and completed Case Information Statement) if you want the court to hear your defense. If you do not file and serve a written answer or motion or general appearance within 35 days, the court may enter a judgment against you for the relief plaintiff demands, plus interest and costs of suit. If judgment is entered against you, the Sheriff may seize your money, wages, or property to pay all or part of the judgment.

If you cannot afford an attorney, you may call the Legal Services office in the county where you live. If you do not have an attorney and are not eligible for free legal assistance, you may obtain a referral to an attorney by calling one of the Lawyer Referral Services.
