New Jersey divorce settlement agreements are obtainable by an online form.

No need to worry if you lost those divorce settlement agreement papers. Getting new copies is as easy as filling out an online form. The form can be hand-delivered to your local courthouse or sent by mail or fax -- a small fee is required in the state of New Jersey. It usually takes 10 days or less to have the copies in your hand.

Fill out the New Jersey Judiciary records request form (Family Division) -- forms are available at your local New Jersey courthouse and online (judiciary.state.nj.us).

Locate the appropriate case management office or municipal court -- this will be within the city or county in which the divorce occurred. Hand deliver, mail or fax requests -- a directory of case management offices and municipal courts is available online (njcourtsonline.com).

Pay fees for the requested copies -- 5 cents for letter-size and 7 cents for legal-size copy, per sheet.
