South Brunswick Divorce
In Middlesex County, New Jersey recently as being one of the “Best Places to Live” in the United States. Over 45,000 residents and 10,000 families consider the city an ideal place to reside and to raise a family.
But with almost 1 out of every 2 marriages ending in divorce, even the best town cannot prevent a breakup. Sometimes problems occur and the legal counsel and services of a divorce lawyer are needed.Understanding the Process
There are specific criteria to be met for a marriage dissolution in New Jersey. At least one of the partners must have been a resident in the state for at least a year. Couples can be granted a divorce if the court decides there are irreconcilable differences between the partners that cannot be resolved.
A partner can also file for divorce if the couple has been living apart for at least 18 months and on other grounds for fault such as:
- Desertion for longer than one year
- Imprisonment for 18 months or more
- Deviant sexual conduct
- Drug or alcohol abuse
Initiating the proceedings can occur in the county in which either partner resides. The court has guidelines for division of matrimonial property, and for alimony payments. Working through the legal process requires the professional guidance of an experienced attorney.Need for Lawyer’s Help with Child Custody and Support
