Dedicated Family Law Attorneys Work to Protect Clients in the Divorce Process in Plainfield, NJ

No matter whether a couple mutually agrees that the time has come for their marriage to end, or whether one spouse has become so unhappy in the relationship that he or she springs divorce papers on his or her spouse, the process of divorce is difficult and traumatic for any person. If your marriage is ending in divorce, it is critical that you have compassionate, knowledgeable legal representation that can effectively guide you through the divorce process. Even a divorce that starts off amicably can quickly turn contentious when the spouses must resolve difficult issues like dividing property or determining child custody.

Establishing Grounds for Divorce Under New Jersey Law

Today, couples who wish to seek divorce may choose to pursue a “no-fault” divorce. Regardless of whether a divorce is “no fault” or “at fault”, a spouse who files for divorce must establish legal grounds for the divorce. A no-fault divorce merely requires that a couple be separated as a married couple for at least the prior 18 consecutive months, or have experienced “irreconcilable differences” for at least the prior six consecutive months; there must also be no reasonable hope of the spouses reconciling with one another.

Of course, a spouse may still choose to seek an at-fault divorce if the other spouse has committed some form of marital misconduct. At fault divorces may be granted in New Jersey on ground such as:

While a no-fault divorce only requires establishing separation or irreconcilable differences, an at-fault divorce requires the parties seeking divorce to prove in court that the alleged grounds for an at-fault divorce exist.

Frequently Asked Questions about Divorce in Plainfield, NJ

FAQ: How is property divided in New Jersey divorces?

New Jersey uses equitable distribution of marital assets and liabilities in divorce. Equitable distribution does not mean that property and debts are divided equally between spouses; instead, the goal is to reach a division that is fair to both spouses under the circumstances of their relationship and taking into account other factors, such as each spouse’s access to separate property or any alimony/spousal support orders or agreements between the parties.

FAQ: Why do I have to disclose my income and financial assets to my spouse in divorce?

When negotiating financial issues in a divorce such as equitable distribution or alimony, both parties will need to exchange full and material financial information. This is because a marital settlement agreement can only be enforced by the court if both spouses have been given materially complete information about each other’s financial situation so that each spouse can make an informed decision whether to agree to a particular settlement. If the financial issues in your divorce go to trial, the court will require both spouses to submit case information statements, and both spouses may engage in further discovery on each other’s income and assets.
