Establishing Grounds for Divorce in Newark, NJ

Today, one or both spouses in a marriage may choose to seek a divorce without needing to prove that one spouse was “at fault” for the failure of the marriage. Couples may instead choose to file for a “no-fault” divorce when the couple has either been separated as a married couple for at least 18 months, or when there have been “irreconcilable differences” between the spouses for a period of at least six months, and there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation of the marriage. 

However, when one spouse commits an act or acts of marital misconduct, the other spouse is still entitled to end the marriage in a fault-based divorce. In New Jersey, the grounds for a fault-based divorce include:

However, if the alleged “at fault” spouse contests the grounds for divorce, the court will need to hold a trial where the spouse seeking a fault-based divorce must prove the existence of the grounds for divorce.

Frequently Asked Questions about Divorce in Newark, NJ

FAQ: What is an “uncontested” divorce?

An uncontested divorce refers to any divorce proceeding in which all the issues that arise in that divorce, such as equitable distribution of marital assets and liabilities, alimony/spousal support, and child custody/parenting time arrangements have been resolved by an agreement between the spouses, such that all that is left for the trial court to do is to review the parties’ agreement for fairness and incorporate the terms into the final judgment of divorce that dissolves the marriage.

FAQ: Will we be forced to sell our marital home if we decide to get divorced?

Not necessarily. One spouse may be permitted by the court to continue living in the marital residence (particularly in situations where the spouses have children). The spouse who gets to continue living in the marital residence may be obligated to take over sole responsibility for the financial payments and physical upkeep of the home and may have to “cash out” via the equitable distribution arrangement between the parties. If neither spouse can afford to maintain the marital home by themselves or there would be no equitable distribution arrangement that fairly compensates the spouse who must move out of the marital home, the court order the property sold and the net proceeds of the sale equitable distributed between the spouses.
