Any individual appointed as an executor or personal representative in New Jersey has a legal responsibility to settle the estate according to the wishes of the deceased. This ordinarily needs to be accomplished in a timely manner by following all of the necessary legal procedures before the assets are distributed and the estate is considered “settled”. This includes probate and paying any debts and taxes that the estate is liable for.
If a New Jersey marriage or civil union breaks down, there is a set of legal processes to go through to bring a legal end to the relationship. Marriages may end in a separation or divorce whereas civil union breakdowns may end in a type of legal separation (you cannot get a divorce from a civil union).
As the times change, so do divorce laws. But a surprising number of people still retain old perceptions about New Jersey divorce laws that are no longer true — or never were true!
How long your divorce will take is a question complicated by several factors. how well prepared you are, how far apart you and your spouse are in your expectations, how you deal with issues, how well you communicate and, if necessary, the quality of professional help you enlist to facilitate your divorce.
