Truly the easiest and quickest way to get divorce forms completed. My to-be-ex and I are fortunate enough to still be friendly, so it was a breeze to get through each question.

When I filed for my divorce, NJ Online Divorce called me in just about an hour after I filed my application. They gave me a friendly reminder that I would have to wait 2 days for my forms to be ready for download. They were even able to answer my questions about the filing process at my local court.

I anticipated stress and hours of time filling out paperwork and having to follow up with the county court. So far, this company has been remarkable not only in providing forms but clear one-on-one instructions on how to proceed. Really remarkable, I put this off for over ten years and am very pleased to be moving forward.

How long does it take to get a divorce in New Jersey

How long does it take to get a divorce in New Jersey

The length of a divorce case depends on many contributing factors such as services used along the process, divorce paperwork preparation time, duration of the negotiation process between spouses, etc.

As for New Jersey, there is no across-the-board waiting period in the state. However, there are some requirements for specific grounds. For example, in the case of a no-fault divorce based on irreconcilable differences, the spouses won’t have a waiting period if they:

  • have been married for less than six months; or
  • have already been living apart for 18 months.

Otherwise, in the case of a fault-based divorce petition, the spouses may need a wait a certain amount of time after filing using those grounds. The spouses should also remember that proving the other party’s misconduct is time-consuming.

As there is no stated waiting period, an uncontested divorce may take 6 to 8 weeks to be finalized after the papers are filed. However, uncontested divorce generally requires 3 to 4 months to work out the settlement agreement and get court approval.

On the other hand, a contested divorce may take from 6 months to a year for issues such as child custody, property division, alimony, child support, etc., to be resolved.

Residency Requirements in NJ

Filing for a divorce in New Jersey, the spouses must fulfill the state residency requirements. According to NJ Family Law, either spouse must have resided in the state for no less than one year before filing. However, for those spouses choosing adultery as the ground for their divorce, the requirement changes to “any amount of time, which can be less than a year.”

If these residency requirements are ignored, the case will be dismissed as the court won’t have any jurisdiction and won’t be able to make any judgment.
