What are grounds for annulment?

The grounds for annulment in New Jersey are much different than grounds for divorce. Because annulment essentially makes the marriage invalid, a spouse wishing to have their marriage annulled must show that the marriage was either prohibited by law or entered into unlawfully.

New Jersey alimony

In New Jersey, either party in a divorce may request that the other pay alimony on a temporary or permanent basis in most cases. There are certain circumstances under which a person may not be eligible to make such a request and still others that, while a request is allowed, it may not be granted. Accordingly, an alimony award is not automatically granted just because one spouse requests it.

How long will a divorce take?

The amount of time that a divorce will take to finalize in New Jersey depends greatly on whether or not it is contested. If a divorce is uncontested, a court hearing may be scheduled for the judge's next date of availability. In some cases, a judge may have an opening to hear a divorce case in as soon as three months after the divorce complaint is filed.
