18 Months' Separation in Monmouth County
Historical Context for NJ Divorce Laws
18-month separation had traditionally been the no-fault grounds for divorce in New Jersey. Prior to 2007, this was the only no-fault grounds for divorce in New Jersey. When the New Jersey State Legislature adopted irreconcilable differences as a no-fault grounds for divorce in New Jersey in 2007, it effectively eliminated the need for the 18-month separation as a no-fault grounds, and the filing under this basis is becoming rare.
