Boutique Law Firm Handling Child Custody, Divorce, Annulment & Separation – Call (973) 577-4118

For a variety of reasons, some couples prefer to avoid going to court for a formal divorce decree and instead pursue a written separation agreement. The best option for a given client will depend on a number of factors, including the willingness of the other party to enter into an agreement. Our Parsippany family law firm also handles “non-dissolution” matters, which are matters primarily involving unmarried parties who have children in common.

As a court-approved mediators and Supreme Court Certified Matrimonial Law Attorney, we handle all types of cases involving family and divorce law in New Jersey.

New Jersey Divorce Laws

New Jersey is considered a “no fault” divorce state, which means that a litigant only needs to allege “irreconcilable differences” of six months or more in duration in order to prove a cause of action for divorce. More traditional grounds of divorce remain, such as extreme cruelty, adultery, and abandonment, but the more common practice has become to use these only when necessary. Our lawyers can explore the benefits of pleading the various causes of action with our clients in detail, as it is ultimately the client’s decision to make.
