Irreconcilable Differences in Monmouth County

Grounds for a No-Fault Divorce

Irreconcilable differences were added by the New Jersey Legislature as a no-fault ground for divorce in 2007. Irreconcilable differences means any difference that has arisen between the spouses which can not be reconciled, and which has caused an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. The breakdown must have lasted for more than six months prior to the filing of the Complaint for Divorce. There need not be proof of the differences or the breakdown of the marriage. The adopted of the irreconcilable differences cause of action greatly eased the filing requirements to obtain a divorce in New Jersey.
