Change in Divorce Law

Effective October 1, 2011, parties who are separated continuously for 12 months can file for Absolute Divorce, even if the initial separation wasn’t voluntary.

Prior to October 1, if the ground for divorce wasn’t voluntary separation, desertion, adultery or cruelty then the parties had to wait 24 months prior to filing a complaint with the Court.

We will wait to see how many people will rush to the Courthouse with this new development in the law.
