Divorce Lawyer New Jersey
The only way to ensure that you receive every protection the law has to offer in your divorce proceeding is to hire an attorney. To have a divorce petition heard in a New Jersey court, at least one of the parties involved must be a resident of the state. The no-fault grounds for divorce also requires that the parties have been separated and apart for 18 consecutive months, showing that there is no reasonable possibility of reconciliation. It is also important to note that NJ courts refer to divorce as “dissolution.”
The grounds for fault in New Jersey include, but are not limited to:
- Irreconcilable differences
- Extreme physical or mental abuse
- Constructive desertion
- Habitual drunkenness or drug abuse
- Deviant sexual behavior
If both parties agree that the marriage is irretrievably broken, the presiding judge should accept that as grounds and grant the petition. If the other spouse disagrees with the divorce, the petitioner will likely be asked to provide evidence that the marriage is broken and that no chance of reconciliation exists.
