For example, what if your answers to New Jersey notices to produce and New Jersey requests for production of documents claim certain documents do not exist or you do not have them and you later find them but fail to advise the New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant who served the New Jersey notices to produce and New Jersey requests for production of documents on you? A New Jersey court could punish you by refusing to allow you to use those documents at your New Jersey trial!

WHAT ARE NEW JERSEY AFFIDAVITS?
In New Jersey court, an New Jersey affidavit is a New Jersey plaintiff’s statement or New Jersey defendant’s statement signed by a person that states that they are swearing that the information contained in the New Jersey affidavit (or in an attachment to the New Jersey affidavit, such as New Jersey court answers to notices to produce and New Jersey requests for production of documents ) is truthful. A New Jersey affidavit is notarized by a notary public of the State of New Jersey.

WHAT ARE NEW JERSEY CERTIFICATIONS?

HOW ARE NEW JERSEY NOTICES TO PRODUCE AND NEW JERSEY REQUESTS FOR PRODUCTION OF DOCUMENTS USED IN NEW JERSEY COURT?
In New Jersey court, New Jersey notices to produce and New Jersey requests for production of documents are documents that can be used at your New Jersey court trial against the party that provides the New Jersey answers. In New Jersey court answers to notices to produce and New Jersey requests for production of documents must be completed very carefully. Otherwise, the New Jersey court answers could defeat the answering party’s complaint or a New Jersey answer by giving the opposing party the information they need to beat the answering party in court. Many New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants fail to take New Jersey notices to produce and New Jersey requests for production of documents seriously and thereby lose their New Jersey case. New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants that fail to serve New Jersey to produce and New Jersey requests for production of documents in New Jersey court are taking major risks in their New Jersey court case. Notices to produce and New Jersey requests for production of documents allow New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants to find out important information about their New Jersey opponent’s case before a New Jersey court trial. Without the information that New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants can get through New Jersey notices to produce and New Jersey requests for production of documents, the New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants could be going to a New Jersey court trial without knowing what the other New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant will say or do at the New Jersey court trial. Many New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants lose their New Jersey court trial because they don’t understand what they must do to prove their New Jersey case. Many New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants think they just file a New Jersey complaint or a New Jersey answer and then show up in New Jersey court with papers and tell their story. This is not always how New Jersey court trials work! Never assume you can just show up to court with documents and use them to support the trial of your case or even refer to them at the New Jersey trial. While it is true that you must bring all documents, photographs, videos and other items with you to the trial that are necessary to prove your case (preferably originals), even if you bring such documents and items to court, the New Jersey court may refuse to allow you to use them at your New Jersey trial. New Jersey has published cases, laws, regulations, New Jersey court rules and New Jersey rules of evidence that are very tricky and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at the New Jersey trial. Accordingly, before the New Jersey trial, you must consult all of these rules to determine how you intend to get your documents and items into evidence or how to properly use them at the New Jersey trial. Hearsay rules of evidence are particularly troublesome and you should study them carefully before the New Jersey trial. For example, it is very common for New Jersey courts to refuse to allow a New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant to use or refer to documents or items that the person themselves never prepared. Often New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants stumble into New Jersey court with a video, photograph, bill or New Jersey affidavit or other form of written New Jersey plaintiff’s statement or New Jersey defendant’s statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a New Jersey judge tell the New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants that it is not going to even consider such items or documents. Without the proper New Jersey preparation, items and New Jersey case documents may never be considered by the New Jersey court. New Jersey written requests for information served and answered in advance of a New Jersey court trial are often useful tools to get the information needed before a New Jersey court trial to prove a case or a defense.

WHY SHOULD NEW JERSEY PRO SE PLAINTIFFS AND NEW JERSEY PRO SE DEFENDANTS SEEK HELP FROM A NEW JERSEY LAWYER?
Handling your New Jersey case wrong from the beginning may only cost you more money and time in the end!! Do it right the first time by seeking legal advice from a competent New Jersey lawyer!

Let the Law Office of Paul DePetris help you with your New Jersey case.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT PERSONNEL FOR LEGAL ADVICE?
New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees. Most New Jersey Court employees are not trained New Jersey attorneys and therefore, they may not know what advice to give you. Working at the New Jersey Court as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT FORMS PROVIDED BY THE NEW JERSEY COURT?
The New Jersey Court usually provides certain types of New Jersey Court legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful. However, beware relying on New Jersey Court forms provided by the New Jersey Court – the New Jersey Court forms are often deceptively simple, while New Jersey cases often are much more complex than they first appear to be. There is simply no substitute for a competent New Jersey attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey who has experience handling New Jersey cases. New Jersey Court forms don’t talk and New Jersey Court forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a New Jersey case. Each New Jersey case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges. If you can afford a competent New Jersey attorney, it is best to have the New Jersey attorney prepare your New Jersey Court paperwork for you.

CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY CASE MYSELF?
Many New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants can and do successfully handle New Jersey cases, from filing the first paperwork to the collection of a New Jersey Court judgment. However, many other New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants also make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their New Jersey cases or that result in the entry of a New Jersey Court money judgment against them. The greater the money at stake, the greater the reason to consider using the services of a competent attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey to handle part or all of the New Jersey case. The following are reasons to use an attorney to handle part or all of your New Jersey case:
• New Jersey Court fees often change
• New Jersey Court rules often change
• New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees
• New Jersey Court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in Court
• each New Jersey case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges
• it is very common for New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants to file inadequate or incorrect New Jersey Court complaints that result in the New Jersey Court complaints or answers to New Jersey Court complaints being rejected by the New Jersey Court or being dismissed by the New Jersey Court after filing and before or after trial because of procedural deficiencies.
• it is not uncommon for judges to get very frustrated by an unrepresented party’s lack of preparation or ignorance of the facts or law of the New Jersey case.
• a Court has the power to punish unprepared New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants, such as by throwing their New Jersey case out of Court or limiting what they can present at the New Jersey Court trial.
• New Jersey has many published cases, laws, regulations, Court rules and rules of evidence that can be very tricky to understand and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at the New Jersey Court trial.
• it is very common for Courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items at the New Jersey Court trial that the person themselves never prepared. Often New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants stumble into New Jersey Court with a video, photograph, bill or affidavit or other form of written statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a New Jersey Court judge tell the New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants that it is not going to even consider such items or documents.
• without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Court. Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey Court trial, you must be prepared to argue them, which may require you to refer to Court rules, evidence rules, laws, regulations or published cases.
• you cannot show up at the New Jersey Court expecting the judge hearing your New Jersey case to explain Court rules, evidence rules, Court procedure or the details of the law that applies to your New Jersey case. The judge hearing your New Jersey case is not permitted to give you legal advice.

It is important to remember that even if you have an attorney, you could lose your New Jersey case. Hiring an attorney to handle part or all of your New Jersey case does not guarantee your success. However, it may provide what is needed to win your New Jersey case or to avoid certain mistakes.
