Types of Divorce in New Jersey
We are able to represent clients who face a variety of divorces, including:
- At-fault divorces – The grounds for a fault-based divorce in New Jersey include adultery, desertion, institutionalization, imprisonment, prolonged drug or alcohol abuse, and deviant sexual conduct. Spouses filing for a divorce on one of these grounds must provide adequate proof of the behavior in order to be granted the divorce.
- No-fault divorces – Divorces filed on the basis of irreconcilable differences or after a separation do not require either party to prove the other was at fault for the breakdown of the marriage. As a result, divorce proceedings are generally easier and less costly than fault-based divorce cases.
- Annulments – An annulment can effectively void a marriage under certain conditions, such as if one or both parties were intoxicated or otherwise incapacitated at the time they were wed. Other circumstances may also provide a valid reason for an annulment.
In the eyes of the law, same-sex unions are treated no differently than any other marriage. However, there may be complexities in regards to child custody, support, and other divorce issues. For this reason, it is highly advisable for those in the LGBTQ community who are seeking divorce to consult a divorce lawyer with experience handling the unique issues surrounding same-sex divorces.
Hiring a Divorce Attorney
Divorce can be a highly emotional process, the outcome of which can have a significant impact on your life. Take the time to find the right divorce attorney for you and your specific case. This is a critical step in ensuring your best interests are protected. The divorce lawyer you choose to represent you should be professional, experienced, knowledgeable, able to listen to what you want and advise you well.
