Divorce is often a sad time for any couple, even if they have mutually come to the realization that their marriage no longer works and that they must end it. However, even when spouses agree to seek a divorce, they may not initially recognize the difficult personal and financial issues that must be resolved between them before the court can grant them a divorce. If you are seeking divorce, you need experienced legal representation who can help you to understand what to expect in divorce and fight to protect your rights and interests during the resolution of the issues in your case, especially if these issues become contentious between you and your spouse or your relationship with your spouse makes negotiated or mediated settlement difficult or even impossible.

In New Jersey, a spouse or couple that wishes to get divorced must establish legal grounds for the divorce. These days, New Jersey law allows for a “no-fault” divorce, in which a spouse or couple may establish grounds for divorce by asserting that they have been separated as a married couple for a period of at least 18 months, or that they have experienced “irreconcilable differences” for a period of at least six months, and there is no reasonable expectation of reconciliation.
Historically, and even today, spouses could seek divorce by establishing that one spouse was “at fault” by committing some form of misconduct. Grounds for an at-fault divorce under New Jersey law include:
Although a no-fault divorce only requires a spouse to prove that the grounds for divorce exist, if a spouse contests being “at fault” for the divorce, the court will need to hold a trial in which the spouse seeking divorce must prove that grounds exist for the divorce.
