Divorce Mediation and Litigation
In New Jersey, mediation is generally the first step in the divorce process. If the divorcing couple is able to communicate effectively, mediation can help to avoid a lengthy, stressful, and expensive trial. However, if litigation is necessary, our skilled legal team is prepared to advocate for our clients during that process as well.
While uncontested divorces are usually the least complicated because the couple agrees to the terms, it is always advisable to have a knowledgeable divorce lawyer on your side to protect your best interests should any unexpected issues arise in any type of divorce.
New Jersey allows for no-fault divorces through two causes of action:
- Irreconcilable differences: In these cases, both spouses must have lived in New Jersey for a year, and be able to prove that the marriage has been broken beyond repair with no prospect of reconciliation for at least six months. Citing irreconcilable differences allows a marriage to end without either spouse taking the blame.
- Separation: Spouses must be able to prove that they have lived separately for at least 18 months and there is no chance of reconciliation in order to file for this kind of no-fault divorce.
Spouses seeking an at-fault divorce are required to provide evidence that at least one of the following grounds applies:
- Deviant sexual conduct
- Drug or alcohol addiction
- Extreme cruelty
- Institutionalization for mental illness
