Sometimes there are irreconcilable differences in a marriage, and the couple can no longer stay in a relationship. Statistics show that more than 50% of marriages end in a divorce. If you’re considering divorce you’re likely to have a number of questions. The Law Office of Adriana E. Baudry is here to help.
A Divorce Overview
Uncontested divorces can be resolved/finalized within a few short months. In more complicated or contentious marriages, it can take much longer. When considering a divorce, you will need to be aware of the reason or reasons that will support the granting of a divorce. If the parties have been living completely separate and apart for at least 18 consecutive months, and there is no reasonable prospect of them reconciling, this would be considered a “no-fault” divorce. In other circumstances, “fault” might include:
- Extreme cruelty
- Institutionalization for mental illness
- Deviant sexual conduct
- Irreconcilable differences
Residential requirements allow a court to have jurisdiction over your case. Generally, either party must be resident in New Jersey for a minimum of one year to meet this requirement with the possible exception of adultery cases.
