Same-Sex Divorce

Same-Sex Divorce In New Jersey

New Jersey recognizes same-sex marriage. With the right of same-sex couples to marry comes the ability to divorce if the marriage has become irretrievably broken.

At the Law Office of Stephen D. Williams in Flemington, New Jersey, we will guide you through the legal steps of dissolving your marriage. The process does not have to be difficult or drawn-out. New Jersey is a no-fault divorce state, which means that neither you nor your spouse has to show that the other side was at fault. Regardless of where you were married, you can get divorced in New Jersey if you have lived here for at least one year.

Achieving A Negotiated Divorce Agreement

In New Jersey, the same laws that apply to divorce between a man and a woman apply to same-sex divorce. One of the biggest steps in divorce is reaching a mutually acceptable agreement regarding the division of marital assets and debts. If you have children through adoption or a previous relationship, you may need to negotiate a child custody and parenting plan.

Flemington divorce lawyer Stephen D. Williams will help you negotiate an agreement that protects your rights and meets your goals. Once you and your spouse reach an agreement, that agreement can become the basis of your divorce judgment. If litigation is necessary, Mr. Williams is an accomplished trial lawyer who will be a strong advocate for your position.
