Reasons You May Want a Divorce

Naturally, people may stay in marriages for a variety of reasons, such as for their children or even out of fear of domestic violence. However, this is no way to carry on, not when you have an entirely new future ahead of you. 

Whether you know the marriage is over, whether it is the most stressful time of year like a Christmas holiday, whether your spouse has committed adultery or committed harm against you, every day is stressful. You (and your children) deserve the liberation and safety that life can offer, even if that means getting a divorce. Our firm can help you handle the legal side while you focus on yourself; from planning for a divorce to responding to your spouse’s papers, our Jersey City divorce firm can walk you through every step of your divorce through to the end.

Filing for Divorce

Note that to file for divorce in New Jersey, either spouse must have resided in New Jersey for the last 12 consecutive months. From there, you may file for no-fault divorce (citing irreconcilable differences) or fault-based divorce (such as adultery). An experienced divorce attorney can better help you determine which type of divorce is applicable in your case.

Some important documents you may be required to file with your divorce complaint include:

  • Filing Letter to the Court—Complaint Form
  • Certification of Insurance
  • Certification of Notification of Complementary Dispute Resolution
  • Family Part Case Information Statement
  • Confidential Litigant Information Sheet

Attorney Artusa, Jr. can help you compile the appropriate documents and file the necessary divorce paperwork. He can also help you prepare to negotiate important divorce matters like child custody, child support, and property division, which is particularly important in high asset divorces.
