Yes. In New Jersey, the court system is actually designed to give parties a decent chance of settling out of court on their own and avoiding litigation wherever possible. If you decide to work through your issues using an out-of-court settlement process – like mediation, for example, where you and your spouse meet with a mediator to help you reach a settlement – the good news is that you can absolutely get a divorce that is low conflict and fair without the hassle and stress of multiple court dates.
