What Divorce Matters Does Tune Law Group, LLC Handle?

Our Readington divorce lawyers handle all facets of divorce legal matters, including but not limited to:

What Are New Jersey’s Grounds for Divorce?

Uncontested divorces are popular as they are typically less expensive and time-consuming. To proceed with a divorce, you or your spouse must have lived in New Jersey for at least one year, file a “fault” or “no-fault” divorce, and state legal grounds for divorcing. No-fault divorces are considered “uncontested” and are the most common type of divorce in New Jersey. Grounds for no-fault divorce include:

  • Irreconcilable differences: You and your spouse have been unable to manage the marriage for at least six months and are certain reconciliation is impossible.
  • Separation: You and your spouse have lived apart in separate residences for at least 18 consecutive months, with no possibility of reconciliation.

New Jersey recognizes the following seven grounds for fault-based divorce, which the filing spouse is required to prove:

  • Abandonment or desertion
  • Adultery
  • Alcohol or drug addiction
  • Deviant sexual behavior
  • Domestic violence or mental abuse
  • Extreme mental or physical cruelty
  • Institutionalization or Imprisonment

What Is the Divorce Process in Readington?

The process of getting a divorce typically involves the following:

  • One spouse files a divorce complaint with the court, and the other must respond within 35 days;
  • Each spouse files a Case Information Sheet (CIS) detailing assets and other relevant information;
  • Negotiate the issues through attorneys or mediation to reach a settlement agreement;
  • File the settlement agreement with the court for final decree.

Contentious divorces involving spouses who cannot agree may result in courtroom trials.

How Long Does the Divorce Process Take?

Even the most amicable divorces take time, and you must follow the court’s schedule. Uncontested divorces are typically finalized within a few months to one year, depending on the circumstances and how quickly you reach a mutual settlement agreement. Contested divorces generally span more than one year.

How Is Marital Property Divided in New Jersey?

New Jersey is an equitable property state, meaning all marital assets and debts are divided equitably, not necessarily equally. The courts consider several factors, including length of the marriage and standard of living, value of assets, and each spouse’s:

  • Age and health;
  • Current income and earning capacity;
  • Financial and economic circumstances;
  • Assets contributed to the marriage;
  • Any other relevant factors.
