Grounds for Divorce in New Jersey

New Jersey recognizes several grounds for divorce. There are two types of divorce in New Jersey: no-fault and fault-based.

A no-fault divorce is based on the spouses being separated for 18 months. This type of divorce does not blame either party for the breakdown of the marriage. A spouse seeking a no-fault divorce does not have to prove any wrongdoing on behalf of the other spouse. A no-fault divorce can be granted even when the other spouse does not wish to be divorced.

On the other hand, fault-based divorce states why a spouse is at fault for the marriage’s end. There are several fault-based grounds for divorce:

Extreme cruelty
Adultery and deviant sexual conduct
Habitual drunkenness or voluntary addiction
Institutionalization for mental illness
Fault-based divorces require the filing spouse to prove the allegations against the at-fault spouse.

Residency Requirements to Get a Divorce in NJ

New Jersey has residency requirements for divorce. A residency requirement is the minimum amount of time a spouse must be living in New Jersey before they can file for divorce. In New Jersey, at least one spouse must have lived in New Jersey for a minimum of one year before filing for divorce.

For adultery divorces, the one-year residency requirement is waived if one spouse lives in New Jersey.

How Long Does It Take to Get a Divorce in New Jersey?

It depends. To get a no-fault divorce based on separation, spouses must have lived separately without interruption for 18 months. For divorces based on irreconcilable differences, the irreconcilable differences must have continued for at least six months.

In any court case, the length of time it takes to resolve the lawsuit depends on some factors outside of the control of either party or their attorneys, like the court’s schedule.
