New Jersey Divorce Attorney Discusses Grounds for Divorce

shutterstock_104878226-300x199.jpgAs an experienced New Jersey Divorce Attorney, when somebody asks me what their grounds for divorce should be, I'm going to respond, "Talk to me." Tell me some facts and give me some information so that I can advise you what could be the grounds of the cause of action." Now, in 20 years, generally speaking, the cause of action is irreconcilable differences. There are other causes of action, for example, desertion and also, of course, adultery. However, irreconcilable differences will cover basically everything. It's also a more generalized and simpler way to proceed in the process.

Extreme cruelty is another cause of action that I've seen often, and with that sometimes you'll get a complaint for divorce and you'll get a three- or four-page additional addendum which lists all these horrifying things. My response and my question to people when they talk about doing that is, "Why are you doing that?" Now, if it's a contested custody battle, that's one thing. If it's an alimony or finance case, that's another thing. Because it's a no-fault state - every state is a no-fault state - it's not going to make a difference. If the spouse is fooling around and cheating on you, you're not going to get more money because of it. The cause of action that I always generally find that people utilize is irreconcilable differences.
