What are the grounds for a fault-based divorce in New Jersey?

In many states across the nation, there is a simplified divorce procedure where a couple only needs to say they have irreconcilable differences and they can be granted a divorce. New Jersey has no-fault and fault-based divorce. It is important to understand when and how to seek a divorce in either category. A no-fault divorce generally requires the parties to say their differences cannot be bridged and there is no chance to reconcile. They also must be separated for at least 18 months. For couples who want a more expeditious resolution, a fault-based divorce might be preferable.
