New Jersey Divorce Laws
In order to file for divorce in New Jersey, you or your spouse must have been a resident in the state for at least one year before filing. However, if you are filing for divorce due to adultery, there is no residency requirement, but one of the parties must declare he/she is a resident once it’s time to file.
The spouse who files for divorce is considered the “plaintiff” and the other is the “defendant.” A “Complaint about Divorce” must be filed in the Superior County Court of the county where the plaintiff lives. New Jersey allows both “no-fault” and fault-based divorces.
There are two types of no-fault divorces. One you can file if you and your spouse have been living in apart for at least 18 months before starting the divorce process, while the other you can file due to irreconcilable differences—if there is proof you and your spouse were unable to continue being married for at least half a year.
The following are the grounds of fault-based divorces in New Jersey:
- Abandonment for at least a year
- Deviant sexual behavior
- Drug abuse
- Institutionalized for mental health reasons
- Extreme physical and mental cruelty
