New Jersey News:
In 2007 New Jersey joined the majority of states by including “irreconcilable differences” as a ground for divorce. The law means that a Complaint for Divorce can assert the existence of irreconcilable differences which have caused a breakdown of the marriage for six or more months.
With the passage of the law, persons may now file for divorce without having to allege marital fault against their spouse or await the expiration of eighteen months separation. New leaf Mediation Group welcomes the change since marital fault is not a factor in the financial aspects of divorce. Even in custody cases, the fact that one’s spouse has committed marital fault is not determinative. The new law does not replace other grounds for divorce such as adultery, desertion or extreme cruelty.
