    What is "Online Divorce"?

    Attorney Provided Online Divorce:
    The divorce forms are prepared in an Attorney's office - not online.


    In order to file for an uncontested divorce in New Jersey, you need to have all of the required divorce forms filled out correctly. One way to do this, is to hire a New Jersey Divorce Attorney who will prepare your divorce forms by using information you provide to the Attorney when you meet with the Attorney in their office.

    Some New Jersey divorce lawyers advertise that they provide cheap divorces and "Online Divorce" and have a website where a customer can enter some basic information about their divorce that is emailed to the Attorney for their review. If the customer decides to hire the Attorney to prepare their divorce papers, they provide the remainder of their information about their divorce to the Attorney via email, an online questionnaire, or by visiting the Attorney's office.

    When the Attorney has all of the information about the case, the Attorney creates the divorce forms and fills them out with the customer's information. The customer then reviews the divorce forms by either traveling to the Attorney's office, or by having them mailed, or emailed to them. If any corrections are necessary to the divorce forms, the Attorney makes them and the customer reviews them again.. and again ... as needed, until they are ready to be filed.

    Thus, when an Attorney advertises that they provide "Online Divorce" the bulk of the effort is performed by the Attorney "in their office" to create the divorce forms and complete them, and the customer has to spend considerable time waiting to have the divorce forms mailed to them for review, or they need to spend time to travel to the Attorney's office to provide information about their case, and to review the divorce forms.

    Also, many New Jersey Divorce Attorneys have divorce paralegals in their office who type and prepare the divorce papers for their clients. In addition to Attorney provided divorce online, there are also cheap paralegal services that provide divorce help and type up uncontested divorce papers for their customers and provide them to their customers online, by mail or in person.

      You can file for divorce in New Jersey even if your marriage ceremony took place outside of New Jersey.

    2. You and/or your spouse must satisfy the "residency requirements." (for more info, click What are the "Residence Requirements" for a New Jersey Divorce?)
    3. You must have a "ground" (a legally acceptable reason) to end your marriage. (for more info, click What are the "Grounds" for a New Jersey Divorce?)
    4. File an uncontested or contested divorce. You determine if you and your spouse can agree on the terms of your divorce (and be able to file for an "uncontested" divorce), or if you disagree and will be having a "contested" divorce. (for more info, click What is an "Uncontested Divorce"?)
    5. Distribute joint marital property. If you and your spouse have any joint marital property (assets or debts) they can be divided in your divorce.
    6. The payment of spousal support, if requested by either spouse, can be included in your divorce.
    7. Resolve child custody, visitation and child support if there are minor children. If you and your spouse have minor children from your marriage, the issues of child custody, visitation and child support can be included in your divorce.

     

    What are the Residence Requirements for a New Jersey Divorce?

    Residency requirements to file a divorce in New Jersey:

    • When the Complaint for Divorce is filed, either the spouse who files it (the plaintiff) or the spouse whom it is served on (the defendant) must have lived in New Jersey for at least 1 year.

     

    What are the Grounds for a New Jersey Divorce?

    New Jersey has "fault" and "no-fault" divorce grounds (legally acceptable reasons) to end a marriage.

      "NO FAULT" GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE IN NEW JERSEY:
    1. Irreconcilable Differences. This new ground for divorce allows either spuse to file a Complaint for divorce without any specific reason. The only statements the party filing for divorce must make are: 1) there has been a breakdown of the marriage for a period of six months; which makes it appear that the marriage should be dissolved; and 2) there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation.
    2. 18 Month Separation. Neither spouse is required to offer evidence of fault or wrongdoing. The Complaint must state that you and your spouse have lived in different residences for 18 months or more and that the months have been consecutive. You must state that there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation. Living in the same residence in different bedrooms does not fulfill the requirement. You do not have to file any documents to start the running of the 18 months. At the end of 18 months you will file a sworn statement that you and your spouse have been separated, living separate and apart, in different residences for 18 months or more and you do not expect to reconcile.

    3. "FAULT" GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE IN NEW JERSEY:
    4. Mental Illness. If your spouse has been in an institution for 24 months or more, you are entitled to a divorce. The institutionalization must be for 24 consecutive months and the entire 24 months must be after the wedding ceremony.
    5. Imprisonment. If your spouse has been in a prison for 18 months or more consecutive months. The entire 18 months must be after the marriage began. The Complaint for divorce should be filed while your spouse is in prison. If your spouse is released and you resume living together, you no longer qualify for a divorce under this ground.
    6. Willful And Continued Desertion, Physical. If your spouse moved out of the marital home and your spouse has been gone for at least 12 months. The desertion must be for 12 consecutive months. If you and your spouse agree that you will separate and that your spouse will move out, you may still file a Complaint based on desertion.
    7. Willful And Continued Desertion, Sexual. Sexual desertion is a persistent refusal by your spouse to engage in sexual relations with you for a period of 12 months or more. This type of desertion cannot be by mutual consent. Your spouse must refuse to engage in relations you desire and would engage in if your spouse were willing.
    8. Voluntarily Induced Addiction. If your spouse is an alcoholic or drug addict and the alcoholism or drug abuse must be for 12 consecutive months or more.
    9. Adultery. If your spouse is having an affair and you know the name and address of the "other spouse" you may file for a divorce based on adultery.
    10. Extreme Cruelty. This is the most commonly used fault-ground for divorce. This ground includes all acts of physical violence and acts of mental cruelty which endanger your safety or health or which make continued living together unreasonable or improper. There is no waiting period.

     

    What is an Uncontested Divorce?

    There are two types of divorces: "Uncontested" and "Contested."

    Uncontested Divorce

    To get a fast, easy and low cost divorce, filing an "Uncontested Divorce" is a great divorce option.

    When a divorce is filed and granted in the State of New Jersey as an "Uncontested Divorce" it means that the parties to the divorce (the husband and wife, or both spouses in a same-sex marriage), have signed their applicable divorce papers that were filed in court, to indicate that they both agree to all of the terms of their divorce, including: the equitable division of their joint marital property (assets and debts) and the payment or waiver of spousal support.

    Also, if there are minor children of their marriage they must both agree on the terms of the custody, visitation and child support.

    When both spouses agree to all of the terms of their divorce, and both of them sign the divorce papers, this type of uncontested divorce is commonly referred to as an "amicable divorce" (amicable means friendly).

    In an amicable uncontested divorce (friendly divorce), both spouses work together to obtain their divorce. Another common name for this type of divorce is a "collaborative divorce."

    Contested Divorce

    When both spouses do not agree on the terms of their divorce, and they fight their divorce out in court, that type of divorce is referred to as a "Contested" Divorce.

     

    What is a No-Fault Divorce in New Jersey?

    How to get a no-fault divorce in New Jersey:

    1. A "No-Fault Divorce" is a type of divorce where neither spouse has to claim or prove that the other spouse is at fault to end their marriage.
    2. In New Jersey a no-fault divorce can be granted on the grounds of "Irreconcilable Differences" when the spouses agree that their marriage has broken down for at least the past six months and that there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation.
    3. Filing for a No-Fault Uncontested Divorce is the easiest, fastest, cheapest and most stress-free type of divorce. Nowadays, it is the most common type of divorce.
     

    How long does an uncontested divorce take to be final in New Jersey?

    • When the Complaint for Divorce is filed, either the spouse who files it (the plaintiff) or the spouse whom it is served on (the defendant) must have lived in New Jersey for at least 1 year.

     

    What are the Grounds for a New Jersey Divorce?

    New Jersey has "fault" and "no-fault" divorce grounds (legally acceptable reasons) to end a marriage.

      "NO FAULT" GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE IN NEW JERSEY:
    1. Irreconcilable Differences. This new ground for divorce allows either spuse to file a Complaint for divorce without any specific reason. The only statements the party filing for divorce must make are: 1) there has been a breakdown of the marriage for a period of six months; which makes it appear that the marriage should be dissolved; and 2) there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation.
    2. 18 Month Separation. Neither spouse is required to offer evidence of fault or wrongdoing. The Complaint must state that you and your spouse have lived in different residences for 18 months or more and that the months have been consecutive. You must state that there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation. Living in the same residence in different bedrooms does not fulfill the requirement. You do not have to file any documents to start the running of the 18 months. At the end of 18 months you will file a sworn statement that you and your spouse have been separated, living separate and apart, in different residences for 18 months or more and you do not expect to reconcile.

    3. "FAULT" GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE IN NEW JERSEY:
    4. Mental Illness. If your spouse has been in an institution for 24 months or more, you are entitled to a divorce. The institutionalization must be for 24 consecutive months and the entire 24 months must be after the wedding ceremony.
    5. Imprisonment. If your spouse has been in a prison for 18 months or more consecutive months. The entire 18 months must be after the marriage began. The Complaint for divorce should be filed while your spouse is in prison. If your spouse is released and you resume living together, you no longer qualify for a divorce under this ground.
    6. Willful And Continued Desertion, Physical. If your spouse moved out of the marital home and your spouse has been gone for at least 12 months. The desertion must be for 12 consecutive months. If you and your spouse agree that you will separate and that your spouse will move out, you may still file a Complaint based on desertion.
    7. Willful And Continued Desertion, Sexual. Sexual desertion is a persistent refusal by your spouse to engage in sexual relations with you for a period of 12 months or more. This type of desertion cannot be by mutual consent. Your spouse must refuse to engage in relations you desire and would engage in if your spouse were willing.
    8. Voluntarily Induced Addiction. If your spouse is an alcoholic or drug addict and the alcoholism or drug abuse must be for 12 consecutive months or more.
    9. Adultery. If your spouse is having an affair and you know the name and address of the "other spouse" you may file for a divorce based on adultery.
    10. Extreme Cruelty. This is the most commonly used fault-ground for divorce. This ground includes all acts of physical violence and acts of mental cruelty which endanger your safety or health or which make continued living together unreasonable or improper. There is no waiting period.

     

    What is an Uncontested Divorce?

    There are two types of divorces: "Uncontested" and "Contested."

    Uncontested Divorce

    To get a fast, easy and low cost divorce, filing an "Uncontested Divorce" is a great divorce option.

    When a divorce is filed and granted in the State of New Jersey as an "Uncontested Divorce" it means that the parties to the divorce (the husband and wife, or both spouses in a same-sex marriage), have signed their applicable divorce papers that were filed in court, to indicate that they both agree to all of the terms of their divorce, including: the equitable division of their joint marital property (assets and debts) and the payment or waiver of spousal support.

    Also, if there are minor children of their marriage they must both agree on the terms of the custody, visitation and child support.

    When both spouses agree to all of the terms of their divorce, and both of them sign the divorce papers, this type of uncontested divorce is commonly referred to as an "amicable divorce" (amicable means friendly).

    In an amicable uncontested divorce (friendly divorce), both spouses work together to obtain their divorce. Another common name for this type of divorce is a "collaborative divorce."

    Contested Divorce

    When both spouses do not agree on the terms of their divorce, and they fight their divorce out in court, that type of divorce is referred to as a "Contested" Divorce.

     

    What is a No-Fault Divorce in New Jersey?

    How to get a no-fault divorce in New Jersey:

    1. A "No-Fault Divorce" is a type of divorce where neither spouse has to claim or prove that the other spouse is at fault to end their marriage.
    2. In New Jersey a no-fault divorce can be granted on the grounds of "Irreconcilable Differences" when the spouses agree that their marriage has broken down for at least the past six months and that there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation.
    3. Filing for a No-Fault Uncontested Divorce is the easiest, fastest, cheapest and most stress-free type of divorce. Nowadays, it is the most common type of divorce.
