Irreconcilable Differences May Be Approved for Divorce in New Jersey; When Will No Fault Divorce Come to New York?

In their New Jersey Law  Blog, Stark and Stark report that  New Jersey took a step toward revamping its grounds for divorce for the first time in 35 years when on October 23 the Assembly Judiciary Committee approved adding "irreconcilable differences" as a cause of action for divorce. 

If passed, bill A-483 would mean that if a person can prove that irreconcilable differences have caused the breakdown of the marriage for six months and which make it appear that the marriage should be dissolved and there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation, a divorce should be entered.

Under current New Jersey law, the only "no fault" ground for divorce requires 18 months separation in different households with no reasonable prospect of reconciliation.  Although similar bills have been introduced during the past, this is the first time "irreconcilable differences" has enjoyed wide legislative support. It should be noted, however, that opponents of the bill are contending that the 6 month period is too short for couples to work through their problems. Nonetheless, the sponsors of A-483 are optimistic of the bill's eventual passage.

One can only wonder when will New York finally embrace a no fault grounds for divorce. Under present New York law, the only alternative to alleging and proving marital fault is living separate and apartment pursuant to a written agreement for a year.  All of the other states have adopted an “irreconcilable differences” grounds for divorce.   It is high time for New York do likewise.

    Why do people want to embrace divorce...especially "no fault"? All this does is make it easy to break down marriages and families....most times against the will of the innocent party who wishes to reconcile. It's a scurge on our society and needs to change. Statistics have shown that the divorce craze is hurting our children and society. It takes two to agree to get married....it should take two to dissolve it. Many marriages could be worked out if the states didn't make it so easy for one party in the marriage to make all the decisions based on his/her whims at the time.

Auf diese Weise kann die moderne Tragejacke am Unterleib ebenso wie am Rücken getragen werden und muss kinderleicht lediglich übergeworfen werden. Kombinierbar mit sämtlichen Trageeinlagen sowie Tragetüchern. Beachtet werden sollte, dass die Gofuture Tragejacken mit sämtlichen Babytrage und jeglichem Tragetuch kombinierbar sind, aber keinen Ersatz für die Trage darstellen. Je nach Ermessen kann der Knirps per Trageeinlage oder in Verbindung mit einem Tragetuch am Bauch oder auch am Rücken getragen werden und ist in Folge dessen fortwährend vor Wind und Wetter gesichert.
