Either spouse must be a New Jersey resident for 1 year or more before filing for divorce, unless the grounds for divorce is adultery and one spouse is already a New Jersey resident.

New Jersey's Child Custody Guidelines

Divorcing parents are allowed to collaborate on a child custody arrangement. If the parents cannot reach a decision, a New Jersey court will make a ruling.

New Jersey courts consider factors such as:

  • wishes of the child, if of sufficient age and capacity
  • the physical, mental, emotional, social, and religious need of the child
 

New Jersey's Child Support Guidelines

Spousal support can be paid in one lump sum, in installments, or periodically. The spouses may determine the spousal support amount and payment schedule, or the courts may award spousal support.

  • duration of the marriage
  • each spouse's earning capacity and financial resources
  • any property distribution and/or custodial arrangements
 

New Jersey's Property Division Guidelines

New Jersey has adopted equitable distribution guidelines, which means all property (including gifts and inheritances) will be divided as fairly and equally as possible. Spouses may collaborate on the property distribution, but if they are unable to agree the courts will make a ruling.

New Jersey courts will consider factors such as:

  • duration of the marriage
  • the standard of living experienced during the marriage
