NJ Family Case Information Statements: Establishing a Roadmap for Financial Issues


Created on July 30, 2019




New Jersey Court Rule 5:5-2 requires the filing of a Case Information Statement in all contested family actions in which there is any issue as to custody, support, alimony, or equitable distribution. The Case Information Statement, when properly completed, establishes a roadmap for the financial issues in family matters. The document contains critical information for the determination of these issues as it provides the initial disclosure of the parties' incomes, expenses, assets, and liabilities.

A well-done Case Information Statement can significantly reduce the amount of discovery required in a family matter. Attorneys practicing in the Family Court in New Jersey must therefore be well-versed in the effective preparation of the Case Information Statement. In this program, Shari Lee Genser and Donald Schumacher of Seiden Family Law, LLC will discuss the basics of Case Information Statement preparation and tips for avoiding missteps with this critical document.
