When a marriage is simply not working out, for whatever reason, divorce may be the best option for moving forward.

Navigating Divorce In New Jersey
Though there are exceptions, most New Jersey divorces can be resolved within a year. Before a judge can hear a divorce case, jurisdiction must be established. A residency requirement is a prerequisite to the divorce process. One or both spouses must have lived in New Jersey for longer than a year before a court may take a divorce case. Once jurisdiction is established, you must consider grounds for divorce.
New Jersey is a “no-fault” divorce state, but not a pure one. You may cite irreconcilable differences or separation for at least 18 months as the grounds for divorce. You also have the option to cite “fault” grounds. In most cases, fault grounds will have no impact on the proceedings. Some “fault” grounds may include:
- Physical or mental cruelty
Once jurisdiction and grounds are established, a Complaint for Divorce can be drafted, starting the process. At the end of a trial or alternative dispute resolution, the process of divorce concludes with a Final Judgment of Divorce, which addresses all of the outstanding issues.
