New Jersey Divorce, Basic Information

You do not need an attorney to obtain a divorce in New Jersey as long as you and your spouse agree upon custody, parenting time, alimony and the division of assets and debts.

Irreconcilable Differences

In New Jersey, there is a no-fault divorce provision known as "Irreconcilable Differences." This permits the spouses to divorce without blame as long as the "irreconcilable differences" have caused the breakdown of the marriage for six months or more and there is no reasonable prospect for reconciliation. There is no separation requirement so the parties may continue to reside together while divorcing.

New Jersey Residency Requirements

The state of New Jersey requires that at least one spouse live in New Jersey for at least one year immediately preceding the divorce filing. In order to file for divorce, you do not have to be the spouse residing in New Jersey, as long as your spouse does.
