Division of Property
Like a majority of US states, New Jersey follows the principle of equitable division of assets.
This means that all marital property may be divided either 50/50 or not if, after weighing the numerous factors, the court concludes that unequal division could represent each party's interests more fairly.
So, in order to determine the fair shares of property the court usually considers the following factors:
- The length of the marriage
- Each spouse's age and health
- Each spouse's income, earning capacity, separate property, economic circumstances
- Any debts or liabilities
- The standard of living maintained before the divorce
- Each spouse's contribution to the couple's marital property (including a non-monetary contribution as a homemaker)
- Any written agreements between the parties (like a prenuptial agreement); and other factors the court may deem relevant

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.
