What Happens During a Same-Sex Divorce?
Same-sex divorces are treated just like any other divorce in the eyes of
the law and are subject to the same legal procedures. Since New Jersey is a
no-fault state, divorcing couples do not have to cite reasons of
fault in order to pursue a divorce, with irreconcilable differences serving
as sufficient reason. The only requirement for divorce is that at least
one of the spouses must have lived in New Jersey for a minimum of one
year prior to commencing divorce proceedings. Just like a traditional
union, gay, lesbian, and transgender couples must sort out the terms of
their separation through either uncontested or contested means.
A couple must decide the following issues:
If an agreement can be reached, a judge will review the terms of a couple’s
separation agreement and finalize it if it is legally sound. Our firm
can help you negotiate with your spouse and pursue an amicable separation.
If an agreement cannot be reached, however, we are fully prepared to pursue
litigation and go the distance on your behalf. No matter the complexity
of your situation, we can provide the trusted advocacy you need.
