What Irreconcilable Differences Are and Why They Are Important
Prior to 2007, the only no-fault ground for divorce available to New Jersey residents was the 18-month separation rule. If the spouses have been living apart for at least 18 months, they could file for divorce.
However, in 2007, the New Jersey Legislature added "irreconcilable differences" as a no-fault ground for divorce.
According to the law, "irreconcilable differences" can be any difference between spouses that cannot be reconciled, causing an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. Before you can file for divorce, this breakdown must have lasted a minimum of six months.
Now you do not need to prove these differences, it is easier for you to file for a divorce in New Jersey.
