Not every potential client we sit down with has a sordid tale of betrayal and misery that led them to seek out our divorce advice. People no longer seek to be married for countless reasons, some of which are because they've simply grown in separate directions.
You may unfortunately find yourself and your partner discussing the possibility of divorce and agreeing to end things amicably, to avoid the long drawnout process of a court fight. When no blame is assigned to the divorce things tend to end with a great deal less stress and resentment on all sides.
There are some requirements to getting a no fault divorce in NJ, such as a residency of over 1 year in the state.
Additionally the differences themselves must be of the degree that the marriage no longer seems realistic to endure. It's in the name, the arguments are of the degree that they're unable to be bridged, or irreconcilable. You are also prohibited from filing for a divorce unless you have been having this level of disagreements for at least 6 months. The court wants to be sure that you have been given enough time to try and work things without interference from the court.
Certainly when children are involved divorcing on the grounds of irreconcilable differences is the best outcome possible. The strain of a familial unit being broken up is difficult on a child regardless of the reasons. If there is a greater animosity between the parents, which is likely in a hotly contested divorce, it can add exponentially to the trauma. The continued stability of the children's home life should be the primary concern during the divorce process.
A divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences does not require the use of an attorney. However this is a legal procedure and like all legal matters with it there comes a lot of grey areas that only someone with expert experience will be able to help you with. We would highly recommend you seek out a consultation with the family law experts at the Simon Law Group.
