What You Should Know

Grounds for Divorce:

In New Jersey, courts require that people cite “grounds for divorce” when filing. It is not enough simply to end your marriage. There must be a reason. Several reasons are legally allowed, including these most common reasons:

The parties have experienced irreconcilable differences that have caused a breakdown of the marriage for a period of six months or more.

Under the law, circumstantial evidence is enough. The spouse filing for divorce must only show proof of the inclination, opportunity and ability to commit adultery. Actual adulterous conduct does not need to be shown.

Sometimes called “no fault divorce,” marital separation can be used as grounds for divorce when the spouses have lived apart for at least 18 months before filing.

There are other grounds for divorce, too. These include extreme cruelty, desertion, habitual drunkenness or drug use, imprisonment, institutionalization or deviant sexual behavior. If you are not sure which grounds for divorce applies in your situation, the best way to gain insight is to talk with your attorney.
