Grounds for Divorce in New Jersey

There are many marriages that end in divorce every year. In the state of New Jersey, there are various laws regarding dissolution of marriage. No-fault divorce can be achieved through irreconcilable differences that have been damaging the marriage for at least six months, or through living separate and apart for 18 months with no reasonable prospect of reconciliation. In addition to these no-fault divorce scenarios, there are other grounds for divorce that you may show the judge in order to obtain the divorce that you desire.

Any physical or mental cruelty that you are enduring which makes the prospect of living with your spouse unreasonable may be used as grounds for divorce. Adultery is another ground for divorce in this state. In order to be granted a divorce based on this element, you must be able to provide the name of the individual that your spouse has entered an intimate relationship with, or at least reasonable information to describe the adulterer. Imprisonment and desertion are both accepted grounds for divorce. If your spouse enters into any deviant sexual conduct without your consent, then you may also use this as grounds to obtain a divorce.
